Free Download - Issa Bagayogo - Poye (Tal M. Klein Remix Radio Edit) from Issa Remixed (click down-arrow icon to download)
It's been an embarrassment of riches when it comes to Six Degrees artists on the road this summer. Just last Saturday night, we had BOTH Céu and Vieux Farka Touré playing two separate shows here in San Francisco. Both concerts were amazing and worked like two sides of one coin. Céu was deeply dubby, soulful and groovy at the beautiful Herbst Theater, while Vieux was fiery and rocking as he proceeded to rip the roof off of the Independent Club with screaming guitar licks that equally summoned the spirits of his West African ancestors as well as guitarists as diverse as Jimi Hendrix, Tom Verlaine and Carlos Santana.
Also currently on the road is Mali's Issa Bagayogo who is bringing his unique style of African/Electro across North America. You can get his complete tour dates here. Last Thursday Issa wowed an LA crowd at the Skirball Cultural Center and our buddy, radio host Derek Rath snapped some great shots that he has generously allowed us to share with you.
Also don't forget Issa's fantastic new remix project, Issa Remixed, which is filled with great mixes from the likes of Shrift, Tal M. Klein, Adham Shaikh, Tapan Raj (one half of the Midival Punditz), Rise Ashen and many others. Here's the radio edit of Tal M. Klein's inspired Afro- Disco mix to give you a taste of the future-Afro sounds and to get your booty moving.
