Hisham Mayet from Sublime Frequencies joins this week's host Dr. Zomb

Its the first show of the month and that means Dr. Zomb hosts the Mississippi Records community of awesome collectors and labels he's met there. Today he is pleased to finally get Hisham Mayet from the excellent Sublime Frequencies label into the air room to spin some new and old material from their catalog.

Hisham travels to parts of Africa and finds, records, and releases music from bands like Group Doueh, Omar Souleyman, Group Inerane and Group Bombino and we are lucky to have him here in Portland and especially on the KBOO airwaves today!
