Radio LBB: Roots Volume XI
Adelphoi Music's Jonathan Watts returns, taking us on another eclectic journey of old, new, overlooked and lesser known tracks that have musical roots in Africa
Roots aims to shine a spotlight on music from around the globe that may not have had the exposure it deserves.
This eleventh list joins the dots between punk, reggae, funk, soul, hip hop, jazz, bossa and Turkish disco. Highlights include a ferocious punk track from one of the first punk groups to emerge, The Pop Group, which sound like the antithesis to pop!
Continuing the punk vibe, there is a piece recorded in 1977 from an Italian band, Chrisma. An obscure band but one that was still worthy of Hans Zimmer’s keys on their third album.
This all sits side by side of fresh music from Anderson .Paak, Harvey Sutherland and friend of Adelphoi, Rosie Lowe.
Hope you enjoy the journey!
