va -- "On A Clear Day" [Graham's Selection Fall'20]


A mixtape full of much-needed positive vibes : who wouldn't feel lifted up by the fresh sounds of the Tom Tom Club's "Genius Of Love" or Sister Nancy's "Bam Bam"? Besides these classics, more super-women rule the zone : the amazing Quarteto Em Cy from Brazil, Esin Afşar from Turkey, Elia y Elisabeth from Columbia, and in a more spiritual way Ella Jenkins and her Goodwill Choir.

Let's not forget the weird Moog-disco track "Gadget" by Moggi (one of Piero Umiliani's many alter-egos), Barış Manço's beautiful "Gülme Ha Gülme", two groovy tracks by British 60's group The Peddlers, and 2 legendary musicians from the East : Indian percussionist Babla and Azeri jazz pianist/composer Vagif Mustafazadeh (with his daughter Elza on vocals in a mad 15/8 version of "Black Eyebrow Liner")!

Thanks : Akram, Cam Cam, Luc, Roady
