We've come a long way since Paul Simon's Graceland… There are so many amazing African artists infused with Western music and Western artists infused with African music.

Africa Express/Terry Riley (composer) - In C Mali
Jaime Wolf

Boomerang

50 years ago, when Terry Riley wrote "In C," he was influenced in part by the hypnotic repetitions of Saharan African music. In 2013, Damon Albarn's Mali-based Africa Express project recorded a new interpretation of the piece in Bamako with an all-star Malian ensemble playing alongside Albarn, Brian Eno, Nick Zinner from The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Gorillaz guitarist Nick Wootten-- it came out last month as a CD and digital download; a vinyl version will be available later this month.
