All Free Music Archive World Music Show

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments


The Free Music Archive - or FMA, as it's affectionately called around here - is the online music sharing library spearheaded by WFMU in collaboration with partners around the globe. Right now the FMA is nearing the deadline of a critical crowdfunding campaign.

So we thought it would be a perfect time to celebrate its world musicky offerings. We'll hear music in the FMA that we've recorded over the past nine years at the amazing annual Golden Fest. Plus more international FMA gems from our show as well as from many other FMA contributors. You can support the FMA at https://freemusicarchive.org/donate.

How did I miss Bomba Estereo play live here? Also, I concur w/ Megaroni about Afrodita.
Avatar Sat. 9/23/17 6:40pm Rob W:

I had Bomba Estereo on pretty early in their career - 2009 - they might be a little tougher to reel in now...!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/23/17 6:46pm northguineahills:

Burkina Electric, Lukas Ligeti's project (well his and others)!
Avatar Sat. 9/23/17 6:53pm Rob W:

I really liked Burkina Electric, they were on the show too back in 2010. Mai Lingani was the lead vocalist and Wende Kouanda the guitarist.

Thanks Jake on behalf of everyone to whom your new year wishes apply! My brain is permanently stuck in 5732 thanks to Hebrew School. I can't believe it's 5778. Where have the years gone?!

True enough xrina. Although for anyone keeping score, the Islamic year is 1439 and the Lunar (Chinese) year is 4715. And the Buddhist year (used in Thailand for example) is currently 2560. Just in case you were wondering...
