A Man in Motion; over the past decade the various projects of Seckou Keita have been discussed within our pages. His latest album and tour features only him and the 22 strings of his kora; we talk to him about his journey so far.
Other features include Martin Simpson & Dom Flemons who we catch up with after their much-lauded collaboration last year; we talk to Dutch group Arifa about their latest Eastern-influenced project; an interview with khayal singer Kaushiki Chakrabarty; plus the latest CD and world cinema reviews to get stuck into.
The issue’s Top of the World covermount CD includes brand new tracks from La-33, The Soil, Amadou Balaké and Cabruêra, plus an exclusive playlist from musician and record producer Phil Manzanera, who talks about some of his favourite artists from around the world.
