Toumast

Move over Tinariwen—the next wave of Tuareg desert rockers is here. Hailing from Mali, Moussa Ag Keyna and Aminatou Goumar—known together, with producer Dan Lévy, as Toumast—have just released their domestic debut Ishumar on Peter Gabriel’s Real World label. A freedom fighter-turned-rock rebel, Ag Keyna recounts how his time in the Tuareg military camps in Libya provided the grist for the band’s hypnotic and haunting music.

Toumani Diabate

Toumani Diabaté comes from 70 generations of Malian griots, so there’s no question that music is in his blood. The Mande Variations marks Diabaté’s return to the solo format and a look back to his landmark 1988 debut Kaira—the first recording of solo kora ever released. During a recent stop on his U.S. tour, Diabaté waxed eloquent and often about his music, his legacy and his way forward.

Buika

Buika was born in Palma De Mallorca to African parents who had been exiled as political dissidents from their native Equatorial Guinea. In collaboration with noted producer Javier Limón, she recently released Mi Niña Lola—a stunning statement of flamenco-fueled power that has garnered awestruck praise the world over.

Garifuna Women's Project

Propelled by the infectious rhythms of Garifuna drumming and the support of Andy Palacio and producer Ivan Duran, Umalali documents the dynamic vocal artistry of some 50 Garifuna women from Honduras, Guatemala and Belize. Seven years in the making, the album eloquently portrays the ongoing struggle to

preserve the Garifuna way of life.

Larry Kirwan
Famous for his outspoken political stance, his shrewd yet poetic observations, and his ability to address the struggles and triumphs of anyone with even a trace of the Irish in their family tree, Larry Kirwan is a poet, singer composer, playwright, author-and last but not least, frontman for "New York's bar band," Black 47.

Big Chief "Bo" Dollis
It was Theodore Emile "Bo" Dollis who, along with his childhood friend Monk Boudreaux, folded a swamp funk sound into New Orleans Mardi Gras culture to create a funk-rock band called the Wild Magnolias, one of the most influential New Orleans bands playing today.
