...well mostly. THE AFROSONIC TAXI sampled the concert scene on Friday, August 28. We started and ended at the Filmore in San Francisco with Ozomatli doing a funk rap cumbia. In between we heard the trance jazz of Orchestre National Barbes, Toureg bands from the Festival in the Desert, rocking Pulaar rhythms from Baaba Maal, makossa funk from Manu Dibango, and Afrobeat from Femi Kuti. All recorded live.
Of course there was so much more. To re-live the ride, click on the podcast link.
