Geoffrey Oreyma - Specially his debut record "Exile"

I bought it because of the tracks :
-Makambo
-Land of Anaka

Very nice and soothing, not to mention very sad, just like the memories I have of a beautiful French girl dancing across the floor as I heard them (It was her cd)....aww how I miss her :-(

what kind of music is it? or continent?
post #78 of 292
It is African, Oreyma is from Uganda.

However he now lives in France and has done so for many years, his music proves to have been popular there and "Exile" was produced by Brian Uno and Peter Gabriel I think...well at least they where involved.

The album is good though for me those two songs really stands out, but as you can see from my original post I have personal reasons :-)

I've been listening to the Soul Jazz Comp SJR Presents: Tropicalia! a lot lately and love it. It's got lots on it from the bigger names from Brazil in the 60's and 70's, as well as plenty of stuff I hadn't heard before. Great whether you want an introduction to Tropicalia, or even if you already know you like it.

[QUOTE=antiant]ok it's time for this thread to be "bumped" again, just wondering if anyone has heard anything new as of late?

Ha!!! Great minds think alike..I was just wondering about where this thread had got to...I got the latest Global Rhythm in the mail the other day and the free cd had a track by a Ugandan artist called Samite. At first I thought it was Geoffrey Oryema as they sound so alike..must be something to do with the type of music coming out of that part of Africa. Not much else jumped out at me though... I also have Live8 for Africa on DVD and Geoffrey sings a couple of tracks. On Land of Anaka he duets with Peter Gabriel who does say 'It's been a while Geoffrey, but I'll do my best' or words to that effect. Great stuff anyway.
Anyway just thought I'd throw in my 2c...Been on a dub kick lately, though might be coming out of it with lots of help from La Bottine...

Oh thats interesting I was actually hoping to see Oreyma on TV when the show was aired but I didn`t.
I should probably get the DVD then since the song is such a beautiful memory for me...get all misty when I hear it though.

What other songs did he sing if any...I just looked at the DVD description and I think it only mentioned "Land of Anaka"...which I consider his best song though written for his father who was killed if I remember correctly.

Just saw Salif Ketia in concert earlier in March and boy what a performer! He and his band seemed doing the show for their own fun, and the audience surely shared their enjoyment. Most of the concert were upbeat: magical electric guitar, intense rhythms, as you'd expect a musician from Mali. However, when he played his quiet numbers on solo acoustic guitar, the music was lyrical, intimate and gracefully innocent. See him live if you have the chance; recordings don't quite do him justice.

He started with a song called (I think...going from memory here..) Lapowny. In the intro by Peter it was made mention how nervous Geoffery was as for some reason his band had not made it down to Cornwall, and he was going solo. IMHO he needs no band...his voice was incredible all by itself.
Also of note was the blinding set by Youssou N'Dour and his band le Super Etoille de Dakar...Even Dido ( nice lady, but what was she doing there? ) didn't shame herself when she sang on 7 Seconds, but 'Set' was a monster..
Well recomend the DVD if you can get it.

I haven't seen this mentioned: Radio Tarifa.

From Amazon's description:

With Mediterranean instruments like the oud, derbuka and ney, Radio Tarifa collapses recognizably Arabic sounds with flamenco rhythms, playing with a flair reminiscent of a traditional Balkan wedding band. (The Spanish ensemble also tackles a 16th-century Sephardic tune and a 12th-century French procession.) Central to Radio Tarifa's charm is the rough-edged voice of Benjamin Escoriza, whose throaty elocution makes his Spanish a terrific blur of clarity and wavering timbre. Aside from the Mediterranean percussion--supplied mainly by the differently-pitched hand drums--Radio Tarifa also dots its grooves with Afro-Cuban inflected bongos and an electric bass, making this global concatenation particularly delightful.

A marvellous group from Southern Spain. I have three CDs from them -- they lean towards a more middle-eastern sound than Spanish, with a dash of Gypsy rumba music in the mix. Very intense, very exciting rhymically. My pick is Cruzando el Rio, although the CD length is a bit short.
