This week World Vibes has a special musical treat on offer ! Three featured albums from artists from North America, Africa & Europe too ! New albums from rapper Shawn Jobin, World fusionist Daby Touré and iconic Richard Séguin, plus songs from farther afield make this a show not to be missed ! Click on ‘World Vibes’ above for more details.
Our first hour samples songs from our first two featured albums, ‘Éléphant’ from new Saskatchewan Franco-Rapper Shawn Jobin (Canada) and ‘Amonafi’ from Paris based World music master Daby Touré (Mauritania-France). ‘Fransaskois’ rapper Shawn Jobin’s new debut album has already garnered Awards for his sophisticated French lyrics and the Beat layered ‘groove’ from Beat Master collaborator Mario Lepage. In between we sample songs from Fusion Master Daby Touré, who sings in 6 African languages, is a multi-instrumentalist, and his latest album, released early last year, is a return to his African roots. New sounds to enthrall and entice, enoy !
Our second hour is devoted to songs from iconic 70’s Québec super star Richard Séguin’s new album ‘Les horizons nouveaux’ (The New Horizons). Long considered a singer-songwriter with a conscience, his new album doesn’t dissapoint and he continues to sing from the heart, a real winner. I wasn’t able to interview him at this year’s Francofolies de Montreal Festival, so in between we hear songs of artists I didn’t play in their interview, such as ‘Un Air 2 Familles’ (France), Laetitia Zonzambe (Central African Rep-Canada), and more ! Fascinating and at times astounding creations for all, enjoy !
