Nothing right now, but the last thing I listened to was on the plane back from San Diego. I've never heard of him before my flight from Atlanta to San Diego. I discovered him on the plane's music list. I played his 8 tracks 3 times in a row on the flight there, and constantly on the return trip. I was blown away.

His name is Vusi Mahlasela.


He played at Nelson Mandela's inauguration and at his 90th birthday. He's also played with artists like Dave Matthews,Taj Mahal, David Hidalgo, and Mickey Hart.

Remember Mickey Baker passed away recently?


Guess what Sylvia did after she split from Mickey in the early 60s?
She opened Sugar Hill Records and produced/engineered all their first
batches of rap records:


I played Rappers' Delight for my 11 yr old, kids in his middle-school social studies class have been getting requests for cultural artifacts of the time relatives were their age, so that's what I hit him with. He was beyond baffled. If it's not metal, it's not suburban, I guess I have failed him...

In memory of Al Wong, the original poster of this thread. A great kid, killed in a bicycling accident. I can't believe this thread is still going after 8 years but am glad it is.
