    Friend of mine posted this a while ago, haven't dug too far in to it. First track sounds rad and this thread just reminded me of it's existence

    Also these 2 dudes have a labour of love finding and playing everything of South African origin. Lots of dad jokes, lots of classics, the latest wave makers of all genres and lots of obscure recordings. They have a far wider net than I could ever achieve. Fun weekly listen

    I did sound for Vieux Farka Toure a couple weeks ago and he was awesome. Super cool dude and his music was great.

    I was nervous about doing sound for him prior to the show. Soundcheck was a little slow going at first and there was a small language barrier. After the soundcheck he and his band took off. I wasnt sure if they were happy with sound or not. They arrived back at the venue and walked right on to the stage and tore it up. They had the whole room dancing for the entire show. After the show I went back to the green room to tell them good show and Vieux walks out of the green room right up to me with a big smile and gave me a huge man hug and said 'great sound'. It made my year to be honest. Hung out a bit after that. He was cool as hell, super chill. Doing sound is strange and you hardly ever get hugs and compliments.

    I remember we had a beautiful music thread in the mayberry lounge yeaars ago. There was a wonderful African song that I can never get out of my head due to its beauty but can't find it for the life of me...:(
