I bought a CD three weeks ago for the first time in years and have been obsessed ever since: Distinto, Differente by the Afro-Cuban All-Stars.

Been listening in the car to Messer Chups, this really crazy Russian electronic (complete with theremin!) surf music band.

Creedence Clearwater Revival. I brought their albums as they came out, still listening to them 30+ years later.

Frank Black, "Fastman Raiderman".  There's a verse in one of the songs, a bluesy song called "Sad Old World," which reminds me of skdadl everytime.

Quote
I know something about sickness
I know something about that now
There is nothing you can do, except witness
No, there's nothing you can do

Same thing I always listen to from 1 to 3pm - the world music show on Espace musique. (Radio-Canada 2).

I found a vinyl of Deja Vu by CSN&Y. It has officially replaced "Concert for Kampuchea" as the only thing worthy to touch the needle of the turn table.

I would very much like to listen to this Rythmes africains à la Bastille ideally live, but if not on the radio - perhaps Radio-Canada Espace musique will rebroadcast the Bastille Day Eve concert of some of the greatest African stars.  8)

I'm listening to a CD of traditional African music recorded in Botswana, Lesotho and South Africa in the 1950s. Couldn't sell the boys on it at breakfast so needed to bring it to work.

I have delved into YouTube to come up with some Canadian music.

The Simon Fraser University Pipe Band... long after they cannot identify Matthew Arnold from Wilfred Owen, or recite de Broglie's Law they will still remember how they marched and played.

The Stampede Parade is on right now; lots of marching bands, including at least one pipe band, probably more.  Plus all the horses, floats, clowns, etc., etc.  (On CTV and Global; does the whole country get it?)

1968 I hitch-hiked into Calgary in the middle of the Stampede. Dirty and tired I watched the World Best Under 21 Pipeband march past the (new then) Husky Tower. The World's best under 21 Pipe Band at the time happened to be a gurls band from Quebec .....  :D

Ya know ... escaping from some turmoil at home, tired and dirty as I was, the world was not such a bad place at all.  :applause:

Title, please?  It sounds amazing.  

I love old-school township music.  There is a Montreal-based performer, Lorraine Klaasen, born in SA who incorporates that sound in her contemporary music.
