A brilliant start to the show! I LOOOOVE that SOOOONG:-)) [referring to Raning in Paradize] Looking forward to more fave pics.
  Sat. 12/29/07 6:15pm Rob:

Well thanks Zach, hope I haven't set the bar too high - I'm sure it's all downhill from here...
  Sat. 12/29/07 6:18pm dakort:

I've wanted to check out Balkan Beat Box due to the Firewater connection, but never get around to it. Must do something about that.
  Sat. 12/29/07 6:28pm Rob W:

BBB has developed a great live show too, the energy is always amazikng, definitely worth checking them out...
  Sat. 12/29/07 6:47pm julian:

huh? just ONE favourite? give me an hour or two to break down my shortlist....
  Sat. 12/29/07 7:05pm wahwahnyc:

Nebine by Malouma is one of my favorites too. First learned about her through Songlines - she's the real thing, a genuine militant singer. I linked to her homepage here:
  Sat. 12/29/07 7:38pm julian:

Little Cow: Virágok A Réten gets the family vote for song of the year
Segu Blue or Made in Dakar have to be up there for top album
Ethiopiques, African Pearls 'Teranga Spirit and Rumba on the River (or were they 2006?) among the best comps.
Mayumi Kojima best new local discovery (but not really so new)

Hmm, if this is my idea of 'one', how am I gonna cope with that tricky maths question?
  Sat. 12/29/07 7:44pm Zach in philly:

"Descarga Inez" is taking my vote at present. It has me bouncing up and down and all around!-)
Great stuff all along but this one stands out~
  Sat. 12/29/07 7:59pm jilda:

  Sat. 12/29/07 8:09pm HORadio:

tru, tru, Rpn Paul is the man.
  Sat. 12/29/07 8:31pm Zach in Philly:

Wow, "Four Sticks" into "Beaten Metal" -- great seque!! Cools tunes to boot. Nicely delivered, yo!~
  Sat. 12/29/07 8:41pm Prince Cobra:
