The Motherland Influence presents:

  Tidiane Kone, Solomane Doumbia, Fela Kuti

WELCOME!

Let’s start with, as Fela said, “What we came into the room to do”.

On The Motherland Influence, we do explore influences of African diasporic music across cultures and across the globe.

One influential African artist was Tidiane Kone. Master of more than one instrument, this Malian musician was best known for his work with the trumpet and being able to cross borders and cultures in West Africa to work with some of the best. We’ll a tribute to him from a wonderful new album from Solomane Doumbia of Segou, Mali as well as hearing his work with such bands as Rail Band de Bamako, Mali and Orchestre T.P. Poly-Rythmo de Cotnonou, Benin.

We’ll hear cross-cultural influences with the music of Fela in Lagos, Nigeria and some of these same rhythms and instrumentation in the Caribbean and in South America.

And that’s just a start! So Let’s start!

This episode is very near and dear to my sweet little heart. As Solomon Wexley and I have been close friends and collaborators for years now. Today we’re talking about their new album “Offerings” which they produced/mixed/mastered all themselves. That is typical par for the course as far as their music goes. We talked about the process of creating this project as well as influences, the new SZA album, and so much more. Hope you enjoy!

Happy New Year!

Starting today with new music from 2022.

Then some reissues and tributes to some artists who celebrate birthdays and to some who passed in 2022.

Well, Fally’s album is only streaming and my service won’t allow me to play it. So there’s that.
