Ahhhh Sunday mornings. There is nothing like grabbing a cup of java, schmearing some cream cheese on that bagel, and kicking back with a copy of the Sunday New York Times, only to find a ripping article on Indie Rocks embracement of World Music. Larry Rohter from the NY Times explores the African music invasion in Indie Rock by talking to Next Ambiance’s own Jon Kertzer and Sub Pop head honcho Jonathan Poneman. Intrigued? Well you can read this feature for yourself by clicking here
The New York Times also just reviewed Aurelio’s new release Laru Beya which came out on January 18th, on Next Amibance. You can check that out here
One last note, Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni Ba’s I Speak Fula was nominated for a Grammy Award in the category of “Best Traditional World Music Album.” Tune into CBS on February 13th to see if he wins. We sure hope so.
