Loik - La Sono Mondiale Vol.1
Loik - La Sono Mondiale Vol.1
(MP3 Podcast on Kraked, 2009-04-28

We couldn't call this 'World Music' cos' the term doesn't mean squatt. We thought it could be some kind of 'Oriental Flavour' thing but then what about the brazilian jazz track in there? Then we remembered Loik Dury used to do the programmation for Radio Nova in France for so many years, bringing to the scene what Jean-Francois Bizot had called 'La Sono Mondiale'. This mix is perfect example of that spirit. Rare groove with no limits whatsoever.

01. Ananda Shankar - Charging Tiger
(from 'Sa-re-ga Machan' LP, 1981 / Emi India)
