The Devil’s Music

at

Malawian musician Gasper Nali performs the extremely catchy, if thematically dark ‘Satana Lero Wapezeka Ndiwe Edzi AIDS’ (‘Satan, Today You Are Found in AIDS’)  on his homemade one-string bass guitar, fretting with a beer bottle, accompanying himself on a cow skin kickdrum.

The sound, the blue sky, the dancing kids – it’s just great.

    Brilliant.
    I love World music.
    Just listening to Mali guitarist Boubacar Traoré here in the Charger Man Cave dreaming of warm sultry evenings under a starry African sky.
    The perfect antidote to a freezing winter’s day here in Ireland.
    Marvellous.

      Ha ha ‘World Music’ Charger – haven’t heard that term in ages – you big 1980s throwback you!
      ;)

        It’s a recognisable genre of music.
        If you can think of a better term I’d be happy to hear it.

            Oh, it’s all music.
            I really like Americana too.
            Okay, it’s on offshoot of modern country but that’s what folk call it these days and I go with the flow.
