Africa is currently hosting the soccer world cup... As the famous vuvuzelas disturb any supporter in front of his TV. I'd like to provide you with a musical solution, an introduction to Africa's greatest musician (and also political activist): Nigeria's Fela Anikulapo Kuti.

This mix contains some of Fela's major songs, never shorter than 12 minutes (!!) that will bring you 1 hour 45 minutes of the original Afrobeat music.

1 hour 45 minutes is exactely the length of a football game, half-time break included, so... please turn off the sound of your TV (and therefore the vuvuzelas), tune in to Maestro K, and enjoy the world cup games with the appropriate music!

2- Je nwi temi (don't gag me)

Identité nationale - Made in France

These last few months in France have been agitated by an awful and dangerous debate about defining (??) the french national identity. Please forget the frogs legs, the baguette, Edith Piaf or Alain Delon, time have changed in this country, hopefully...

This mix is 100% french, and is exactely the opposite of what you might expect of french music: Modern, electronic, eclectic, sometimes in english and brings to your ears a positive power.

Yes, time have changed... this is now part of our "Identité Nationale", so please enjoy!!!
