Maga Bo & Xuman (Senegal) – ‘Fire’

Maga Bo‘s exploration of underground global sounds continues with the forthcoming release ‘Archipelagoes’ on dj/Rupture’s Soot Records. As a taster, Bo presented this clip on his Kolleidosonic blog – ‘Fire’ featuring Senegalese MC Xuman. Originally tucked in at the end of the 2007 mixtape ‘Confusion Of Tongues’ (one of Fat Planet’s Albums of 2007), ‘Fire’ is the first track to receive the video treatment with two more promised soon: ‘Saye Mbott’ featuring Alif, filmed in Dakar, and ‘Nqayi’ feat. Teba which was shot in Cape Town.

‘Shook’ magazine recently published an article from Maga Bo detailing his experiences of the Ethiopian music industry – you can read a short extract, titled ‘Electronics Merkato’ at their blog. Catch Maga Bo on a selection of dates throughout U.S. and Canada in April.
