What does a West African garage band sound like? You'll hear one this week on Global A Go-Go — Baba Commandant (pictured above) & The Mandingo Band from Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso.
They do rehearse in a garage (videos are available), and they rock out just as aggressively as an American garage band. It's just that the rhythms are a hell of a lot more complicated.
Also this week: the sound of spiritual jazz, music of Morocco and Algeria, and a visit to NYC's barrio.
