The Touré-Raichel Collective to release new album
Expect a new album by The Touré-Raichel Collective on September 30th. Last time you may recall Vieux Farka Touré and Idan Raichel recorded in Tel Aviv. This time, however, the two were in the City of Lights to record The Paris Session for Cumbancha Records. Leading up to the release NewWorldBuzz is playing the track "Hodu" from the album.

 

New Tony Allen album set for release in the fall
Afrobeat legend Tony Allen, who celebrated his 74th birthday earlier this month, will be releasing a new album called Film of Life in October. The Nigerian drummer's label Jazz Village has released the single "Go Back," a new song that features vocals and keyboards from English musician Damon Albarn. The track is now trending on NWB.

 

Long awaited new music from Bebel
Brazilian chanteuse Bebel Gilberto has announced the release of her first new studio album in five years. Tudo was released August 19th on Portrait/Sony Music Masterworks. Bebel's 12-track collection will cool off a hot summer with her trademark blend of Brazilian rhythms and ethereal vocals. So far there doesn't seem to be a lead single although Bebel has been performing "Saudade Vem Correndo" and the title track on interview programs.
