May 23 - Playlist Spotlight

Bridget B. here, and boy was this spotlight selection a tough one.  I was torn between Angelique Kidjo, Les Nubians and Zap Mama.  Two things that swayed me: upcoming concert in Portland at Doug Fir Lounge and The Triple Door in Seattle with the ultimate decision coming after listening to the new CD - ReCreation.  I couldn't find a song that I didn't like.  Because of my travels,  my ear is more tuned to internationally infused music and this was one of those ear elixirs, full of vibrant and exotic flavors.

Who are they, or more like who is she? Zap Mama was primarily an acappella group of Afro-European women, but in 1996 the lead singer, as shown on the cover, the beautiful, songwriter and vocalist Marie Daulne, emerged as Zap Mama, a solo artist with a robust, international offering of sounds.  But let's take a few steps back in time.
