Secret Bonus Level presents:

We are so GOOD at our jobs. We are doing great. Thank you for listening to us. We are so lucky to have great people like YOU paying attention to us.

But for real: The Secret Bonus Level Band just destroyed the Camel. And I gave them the night off tonight from our radio show. Because I was like, “Dudes, you killed everything possiblr.”

This is a rap radio show. With freestyle cyphers. It’s good. Listen to it!

Global A Go-Go presents:

Wednesday December 12 is Jamhuri (“Republic” in Swahili) Day, one of three days on which the Republic of Kenya celebrates its independence; the others are Madaraka (“Self-Governance”) Day on June 1 and Mashujaa (“Heroes”) Day on October 20.  Three times the pleasure, three times the fun, I guess.

In honor of Jamhuri Day, Global A Go-Go celebrates with two hours of music from Kenya.  I’m not making any attempt to provide a comprehensive overview of Kenyan sounds — I’ll be playing the Kenyan music I dig the most.

And most of that fits into the broad category of what East Africans call musiki wa dansi — no translation needed, I’m sure.  There are a bunch of different genres: benga, Swahili rumba, kamba.  They’re all guitar-driven, closely related to Congolese soukous and, in my opinion, thoroughly addictive.  I’ll dip into a few other styles as well: some folky/worldy stuff, soul, funk and even hip hop if time permits.
