A World in London - Episode 59

Invisible System’s Dan Harper, the original pioneer of Anglo-Ethio grooves gave a formidable interview on this A World In London. In Somerset & London, his early musical heroes were Bow Wow Wow and Adam & The Ants but a sense of affinity with Africa drew him to Mali followed by Ethiopia. There he established a recording studio and worked with some of the greatest East African artists of our time. ‘Melkan Kehonelish’ in today’s playlist features the voice of octogenarian singer & world music award winner Mahmoud Ahmed. Look out for Dan’s superlative sounds on The Rough Guide to Ethiopia CD, and on his new live album ‘Live & Raw (Roar!!!)’
