Introducing: The Daptone Rhythm Showcase. Sink your teeth into this bakerʼs dozen of tantalizing, previously unreleased songs by Antibalas (”Ìyàmi Àjé”), Menahan Street Band. (”Dancers' Mood”), Innov Gnawa (”El Bouhala” - from their forthcoming debut full-length Lila), as well as other deep cuts and diasporic dialogues from across space and time.
Get ready to move to this exquisite collection of sultry sounds stretching from the five boroughs of New York to the bustling megacities of West Africa, the deserts of Morocco, the sacred and psychedelic landscapes of the Native American West and beyond. Buckle up for this multi-continental rhapsody of rhythm and groove. Musical medicine for the body, mind and soul: once again Daptone delivers.
