VA-Everyone's World from Andy Kershaw

As a follow-up to previous posts about John Peel, it seems a nice idea to remember his death exactly 12.5 years ago with a similar post put together from recordings from Andy Kershaw's show on BBC Radio 1. They were real pals, shared the office and for some time their radiohsows were directly behind each other (first Kershaw followed by Peel, including sometimes humorous handing overs in between the shows).

Namgyal Lhamo - 2010/13 Live & Session NL

Now let's fly over to a place not covered before on Mangue Music, and where probably no mangos are growing, but with inspiring music: Tibet.
Namgyal Lhamo - live bringing music from Tibet

Namgyal Lhamo - The Nightingale of Tibet

summary from www.musicwords.nl/papyros~artist~Lhamo, Namgyal_en.html
Namgyal Lhamo was born in 1956, the year of the Chinese invasion of Tibet, just across the Tibetan border in Nepal at the foot of the Kanchen Junga mountain range. She grew up in a pure Tibetan environment where all religious, social and cultural traditions still prevailed. Her father was highly respected by all ethnic groups and had a long term vision to develop the community while preserving the traditions. Education was key for him, so Namgyal was sent to school at an early age.
In the early 1970s Namgyal’s father ran into trouble with the Nepalese authorities and army, as his house had been a natural stop for any Tibetan fleeing from Tibet over the passes west of the Kanchen Junga. For safety reasons his daughters were sent to India in the care of the Tibetan government in exile.
There in Dharamsala they were selected to join the Tibetan Institute for Performing Arts (TIPA, set up by H. H. the Dalai Lama). Starting at a very young age, Namgyal Lhamo trained for over fourteen years under the great masters of Tibetan Opera and Classical Music. She went on to become the star performer of the TIPA and travelled over India and the world. Her interpretations of the Nangma and the Toeshe, Tibetan opera and classical songs from the 17th century, have been universally acclaimed and she is popularly known as 'The Nightingale of Tibet'. Through this passage she stepped into the tradition of the various kinds of classical and folk music of her country.
Namgyal Lhamo performs solo and is accompanied on stage by her voice, the Tibetan lute (Dranyen), sometimes the flute or dulcimer and her independent spirit.
Since the 1980’s Namgyal Lhamo lives in the Netherlands, still pursuing the mission to preserve Tibetan culture and traditions through her music. She acted as extra in the Hollywood production ‘Seven Years in Tibet’, and was the leading figure in the Dutch documentary ‘Seven Dreams of Tibet’.
Next to her music and acting she is running the Tibetan restaurant 'de Werfkring' in Utrecht, recommended if you're in the neighbourhood and looking for a nice place to eat.

Listen to her live in 2010:

Various Senegal from K7s (2006-1)


mangos from Senegal
source: organic-market
As promised at the end of the previous post about Orchestra Baobab, more music from Senegal.

This is a follow up of the, about half a year ago posted, K7s radio shows (Guinee and Mali), which I catched again from the ConcertZender in 2006.

info from the radioshow:
For the African market cassettes are important - they are easy to duplicate and play. Musically it's interesting because often less concessions to Western tastes and pop influences are made. We go on a journey through a stack of cassettes from Senegal.

Orchestra Baobab - 2017.Jan.31 Live in London (DL)

As promised a month ago, when the Orchestra Baobab show can not be listened to anymore on the BBC player, I'll upload it here!!!

Orchestra Baobab - 2017 January 31 - London

Main Space - In The Round (+ Estée Blu as support act)
2017 sees the return of In The Round, a series of intimate performances staged in a rarely seen fully seated concert set-up at the Roundhouse. One of Africa’s great iconic bands, Orchestra Baobab create some of the world’s most sublime and truly distinctive music.
Formed in 1970, taking their name from the Dakar nightclub where they were resident, they fused Afro-Cuban rhythm and Portuguese Creole melody with Congolese rumba, high life and a whole gamut of local styles, kick starting a musical renaissance in their native Senegal, which turned the capital, Dakar, into one of the world’s most vibrant musical cities.
The band released dozens of recordings before disbanding in the mid-80s but it was their neglected 1982 album, Ken Dou Werente - which included many of their most famous songs, ‘Coumba’, ‘Ledi Njemme Mbodj’ and ‘Utru Horas’ - that became a cult-classic, re-released to huge acclaim by World Circuit Records in 1989 under the title Pirate’s Choice.
The band reformed in 2001 with encouragement from Senegalese superstar Youssou N’Dour and the following year released Specialist in All Styles, their first album in nearly 20 years.
In 2007 they released Made in Dakar, and now, nine years on, Orchestra Baobab are back in the studio recording their fourth album for World Circuit, which is set for release in Spring 2017.
With support from Roundhouse Resident Artist Estée Blu, a singer-songwriter who embraces genres such as Jazz and Gospel and champions authenticity and imagination through Neo- Soul and R&B. Often likened to Solange, Lianne la Havas and Corinne Bailey Rae, Blu equally brings her own style to Contemporary R&B.

1.BBC World on 3 introduction

*from World Routes (2001.Sep.01, BBC Radio 3)
Lucy Duran travels to Dakarto meet the Senegalese Orchestra Baobab, performing again for the first time since the 80s.
Earlier this year (2001) the legendary and seminal Senegalese salsa band Orchestra Baobab reformed, performing together for the first time since the 80s. The group, whose mellow sound rocked West Africa, is now recording a new album at the studios of African superstar Youssou N'Dour. Lucy Duran travels to Dakar to meet the band  and witness this historic event.
