Blitz The Ambassador - World People 02

Blitz The Ambassador - World People 02
(MP3 Podcast on 2011-05-02

The World People concept is quite easy: we meet artists in Paris, shoot some photos, ask them for a playlist of what they're currently listening to, we publish a mix of the thing, and find in the artist' selection the next guest. Our first guest, Seun Kuti, had Blitz The Ambassador in his selection - and what a blast it's been to discover this Ghanean-American's Afro-Hip Hop bombs!! His new album Native Sun will be out this week and if you get the chance to go and check him onstage, don't hesitate!! If in doubt, peek at his video channel, you'll be amazed...
