Song featuring KBOO's Mic Crenshaw and African artists recorded in Tanzania as Part of the Afrikan Hiphop Caaravan 2014

program date: 
Fri, 12/19/2014
This song was recorded in November 2014 as part of the Afrikan Hiphop Caravan http://hiphopcaravan.net/2014/

It was recorded at the UAACC; United African Alliance Community Center outside of Arusha Tanznia. http://www.uaacc.habari.co.tz/

Mic Crenshaw, Portland OR., U.S.
Khusta, Cape Town, South Africa.
Diwi, Arusha Tanzania, beat production and emcee.
Emodizzo, Ausha Tanzania, beat production and emcee.
Ima Maasai, Arusha Tanzania.
Mama C, Arusha Tanzania.
Guim, Canada on the flute.

Here's some rough info about the song:
The verses are performed in Xhosa by Khusta (South Africa), Kiswahili by Emodizzo and Diwi and in Maasai by Ima Maasai who sings the hook and English (with some Kiswahili from Mama C) by Mamac C and Mic Crenshaw.

Mama C says of the piece:
I dig the way Diwi keeps urging Africans to 'return home!' in Kiswahili.  Diwi is something of a legend in the hip hop community.  He’s known for his freestyle fire and beat boxing and he is well known as a producer also. While Emodizzo is new on the scene but making his mark! Ima Maasai is becoming known for his innovative style that utilizes both traditional instruments and Maasai language and song. All these dudes are very creative and I love jammin’ with them…especially free style/improv.  Ima Maasai, Diwi and I are all members of Wakunga Zamani that does experimental music with African/Jazz/Blues singing and instruments and fuses it all with hip hop!
Also the flutist on the track is Guim, a French speaking Canadian musician who was here as an intern for several weeks. He taught basic/elementary French to our students and children. He is also a bassist (guitar and double bass).

"Hey I'm on my way, on a journey out of this world..."

~Lux Interior (10.21.46 - 2.4.09)

I played lots of music from The Cramps long, illustrious career, including some rarities and well-loved vinyl treats.

I got a lot of nice calls; one from a guy who said he was in a garage full of bike mechanics who were digging the tunes and some even from people who had never heard The Cramps before and liked it.

I'll miss Lux and somehow the world without the possibility of new Cramps records seems unthinkable.

So long, Lux and thanks for all the happy memories and here's hoping Ivy continues on in the mission in some way.

We said goodbye to George, listened to bad poetry, some frightening and shockingly bigoted schizophrenic ranting from Francis E. Dec and played some of the new(ish) John Zorn album The Crucible.

On Friday night, from 10pm to Midnight, we were delighted to have on special guest noise artist Briz, who played a live set of drone/ambient sounds with his mysterious array of gadgetry.

You can find out more about his various projects at http://brizbomb.com/

You can listen to Briz's performance and Interview here.

He was also kind enough to stay for an interview and perform throughout the remainder of the show while I spun discs, samples and other mayhem.

Fun show. It's almost impossible to list all the sounds we played, but I have a rough transcription posted below Briz's performance in the list.

You can revisit this show in its entirety off-site at my blog Kill Ugly Radio.

Laibach formed in the small coal mining town Trbovlje in 1980, the same year as the death of Jugoslavija's long-time ruler Josip Broz Tito.
In 1982, they began performing around Slovenia, often under the radar of officials due to the controversial nature of their name - Laibach, which was the Germanicised name of Slovenia's capital city Ljubljana when the region was conquered by German-speaking nations throughout Slovenia's history. The name was also evocative of WWII collaborationists, which made them targets of derision from veteran Partisans.

They achieve much notoriety with their provocative performances, often promoted with simply the image of a Malevich cross instead of the forbidden name. One notable concert had a female member reading a letter from a Partisan group that condemned the band, followed by original frontman Tomaz Hostnik coming on stage in a Nazi uniform and quoting Mussolini. The cover of the live album Zagreb, Beograd, Ljubljana depicts Hostnik staring down the crowd with blood streaming down his chin from a hurled bottle. Despite his formative and aesthetic influence on the band, Hostnik soon departed and committed suicide by hanging from a kozalec - an ancient iconic Slovene hayrack, as depicted on the cover of the album Rekapitulacija.
A semi-official ban on their use of the name forced the band to seek outlets outside of Jugoslavija, which lead to wider exposure to a Western European audience and eventually America. When Laibach toured abroad in Europe, they declared the countries 'occupied'.

Laibach continued to achieve critical success, garnered a session with influential BBC DJ John Peel and deals with Wax Trax and Mute Records, the former of which continues to this day.
Paradoxically, it was the inclusion of Laibach videos on MTV's 120 Minutes program that probably gave most Americans their first exposure to their horrific sound and visuals. The videos for Opus Dei and Geburt Einer Nation, from the album Opus Dei, got airplay for more than a few subsequent weeks, as did the video for Sympathy for the Devil.

In 1984, Laibach joined forces with political painter collective Irwin under the umbrella of NSK (), along with the theater group Nasice Scipion Sisters (later named Red Pilot) and the graphic design department Nova Kollectiv.

In 1992, NSK declared itself a virtual state with no physical territories and began issuing passports at NSK events and Laibach performances.

Laibach continued to perform amidst the breakup of Jugoslavija, even giving a performance in war-torn Sarajevo, including issuing NSK passports to willing participants, who latter used them in the ensuing chaos to escape to safer territories.

Laibach has been the subject of many movies, the best of which are Predictions of Fire, Bravo: A Film from Slovenia and Victory Under the Sun. Mute/EMI are slowly releasing some of these on DVD. Two great books on the Laibach/NSK phenomenon  are Alexei Monroe's Interrogation Machine (MIT Press) and  NSK: Neue Slowenische Kunst/New Slovenian Art  (Amok Books).

Laibach continue to release albums sporadically and tour.

Despite an ever shifting lineup, they insist that Laibach has always been Dachauer, Eber, Keller and Saliger.
