was chatting to one of my all timers the other day on the phone and was asking him whether he liked reggae or not.
he said he didn’t mind it, but had not connected with it, unlike other genres.
I asked him what music he really ‘connects’ with and he said jazz, north african shit and cuban stuff.
I told him I didn’t know many north african artists, so could he give me one solid artist to be getting on with.
he said - Youssou N’Dour!
now, firstly…this is a shit answer. everyone knows this cat. he’s probably the most well-known of all the african artists (cept maybe Fela)
secondly - he’s actually from Senegal. which as we all know, is West Africa.
sooo…I reckon my man was trying to impress me with his wide-ranging musical tastes, but when I put him on the spot, he just chucked any name out. why would he do that? (non rhetorical)
feel like I’d like to call him out on this one. couldn’t give two-hoots who he likes. Spice Girls? no problem. Sclub 7? sure, why not
