ROCKET FM - WORLD MUSIC PROGRAMME 15/10/2018 7-9pm - PLAYLIST

As usual, I will try to keep a theme to my programmes and tonight I will be trying to go through the alphabet and playing a track from countries starting with that letter. I have had to cheat a little but with a couple of letters, but not much. So I am trying to fit 26 pieces of music in two hours so I'd better get a move on. I'll be playing tracks in pairs and that will bring some strange contrasts as you will soon hear from my first choices from Albania and Brazil.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
As usual. I have a theme for my programme and today it is this. I am playing two tracks back to back and each pairing will have at least one singer or musician who is on both tracks, often showing quite different sides of their musical careers - and we start with the West African country of Guinea Conakry, bordered on the coast at least by Guinea Bissau and Sierra Leone. Not many recordings from that country reach Europe which is a great pity because they have some fine musicians there

Fair comment on the programme to be broadcast on 22nd, Modette, I've just checked my playlist for the one on Thursday 25th and as far as lead singer/musician goes in that programme the balance is 11 male to 12 female.
I ought to point out that around 80% of the CDs in my collection are therefore the ones that I can choose from - Rocket FM has a disc library totalling zero - are ones that come from unsolicited review copies either from record companies or magazines or the artists themselves. I would reckon that the overall numbers of lead performers in these albums are male.
I wonder if there are figures for the gender ratio figures of albums released by major/independent/specialist labels and whether the proportion is different for each genre (Female hip-hoppers would not seem to be very plentiful - just an impression). I also wonder if the ratio has changed with the years.

I have two interview guests tonight., from different generations. Cohen-Braithwaite Kilcoyne is the younger performer who is already making a big impression on the folk scene both as a soloist and as a member of the excellent young trio, Granny's Attic. He's in the first part of the programme and then after the news at 8 it will be a long-established singer and musician, Steve Turner, and both these performer have new albums out and that will be the focus of our conversations.
In the rest of the programme, I will be featuring tracks from new folk albums, all released since Rocket was on the air last year.

I want to mark Black History Month with a programme featuring black artists and I have drawn on music from all over Africa, Latin America and the West Indies with the odd visit elsewhere. As well as black singers and musicians, I want to feature a substantial majority of female performers AND I only want to play one track from each country - that is apart from this first pairing of tracks which are both from the country which has the official name of the Republic of Guinea, but as there are three African countries with Guinea in their name, this is always called Guinea Conakry. And as there are eight women in Les Amazons de Guinée and three women in Les Soeurs Diabaté, that gets black women off to a good start in this programme.
Les Amazones De Guinée (Guinea Conakry)        Reine Nyapou
Les Soeurs Diabaté (Guinea Conakry)        Kalaro
Boukman Eksperyans (Haiti)
        Kouman Sa Te Ye
Culture Music Club (Zanzibar)        Mpunga
Rasha (Sudan)        Leala
Danyel Waro (Reunion Islands)        Bat La Min
Orchestra Baobab (Senegal)        Pape N'Diaye
Batata y Su Rumba Palenquera (Colombia)
        Ataolo
Kandia Kouyaté (Mali)         Sambayaya
Batuko Tabanka (Cape Verde Islands)        Qui Dia Nta Tchigala
Ry-co Jazz (Democratic Republic of Congo)        Marie Jose
Vakoka (Madagascar)        Era
La Negra Graciana - Graciana Silva (Mexico)        El Pájaro Cú
Skeleton (South Africa)        Kwa Xhosa
Gnawa Collectif (Morocco)        Bangoro
Zainaba Ahmed (Comoros Islands)        Yowa
Thomas Mapfumo & The Blacks Unlimited (Zimbabwe)        Hanzvadzi
Guillermo Portabales (Cuba)        Junto A Un Canaveral
Vishwa Mohan Bhatt. (India)         Mhari Mendhi Ro Sang
Ifang Bondi (The Gambia)        Karo [The Moon]
Issa Juma and Super Wanyika Stars (Kenya)        Barua

I suppose the whole point of these programmes as far as I am concerned is to try to get people to open their ears and listen to more than what is easily available. There is a whole world of great music out there and all you have to do to find it is a few simple internet searches. It really is as simple as that.
