Mar 17, 2011

You can always trust DJ Zhao to deliver an intense blend of fine sounds from all over the world. He did an incredible job with his Chop Chop Supermix for us, and he’s back again with this amazing 2 hour set – yes, 2 hours – of transatlantic rumba bliss. With a heavy emphasis on Congolese rumba and soukous, some of our very favorite music. Make sure you check out his great blog Different Waters.

In Zhao’s own words:

“following the musical diaspora from Africa to the Caribbean and back again, the story of Rumba is one of the central narratives of modern music. This edition of Radio Ngoma explores amazing sounds from places like the Congo and Nigeria to Haiti, Guadalupe, Colombia — Soukous, Afro-Funk, Tropical Disco, Cumbia — timeless rhythms to warm the heart and move the feet.”
