WHAT'S HOT

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.

 

Fatoumata in new film
Malian star Fatoumata Diawara will be appearing on the big screen this summer. Look for her in Morbayassa, the second feature film by Guinean director Cheick Fantamady Camara. Fatoumata will portray the character Bella, who is a beautiful 30-year-old Guinean dancer in a Dakar cabaret.

 

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.

TODAY IN WORLD MUSIC HISTORY

FELA FACT
Did you know Fela accused Paul McCartney of "coming to steal the black man's music?" This happened upon the former Beatle's arrival in Lagos, Nigeria, to record the album Band On The Run in late August 1973.
