Global A Go-Go presents:

We’ll start this week’s program with four selections from Sahel Sound’s new Music From Saharan WhatsApp series.  Throughout 2020, the label is releasing one EP a month that’s been recorded by the artists on a cellphone in the southern Sahara, transmitted over WhatsApp, and uploaded to Bandcamp where it’s available for a month before it disappears, just like a WhatsApp message does.

This subversive distribution model gives 100 percent of the proceeds to the musicians and reflects how most music is acquired in the region: by file sharing (with no payment to the artists, of course) over WhatsApp.  It’s also resulted in an immediacy that you just won’t hear in other recordings — it’s the next best thing to the live performances we’re all missing right now.  You can read more about the series here.

Also this week (Monday June 29, 3:00-5:00 PM on WRIR, for two weeks afterwards at wrir.org/listen, check your local listings for airing on other radio stations, and any old time at my podcast site): kora shredding; a taste of Afro-Japanese music; the latest from Ukraine’s DakhaBrakha; Latin psych-funk from the 60s and 70s; and a Hailu Mergia sampler.
