This week, Afropop Worldwide brings you a special treat. To go along with our episode, “Getting Down in the Guyanas,” we have a mixtape of some of our favorite music from Suriname and French Guiana.
From the first time I turned on the radio in Paramaribo, Suriname, I was blown away by the music I heard. It’s related to all sorts of African-rooted music on both sides of the Atlantic, but it has its own particular swing that makes it totally unique. There’s bits of soca and dancehall, bits of merengue and bolero, snippets of Dutch bubbling and American r&b, African kuduro, French Caribbean zouk and compas. But it all mixes up in a way that is hard to pick out the individual parts, and is insanely good.
Part of that is because the Guyanas, up in the corner of South America, are everywhere and nowhere all at once. It’s not quite Latin America, and not quite the Caribbean, but right between both those regions. At the same time, the people of the Guyanas come from all corners of the world, speak countless languages, and worship all sorts of religions. And they live inside or right on the edges of one of the world’s most pristine wildernesses, the vast forests of the Amazon.
On this mixtape, you’ll hear Hindustani trance music from Suriname, French Creole zouk (sung in Dutch creole), and dance-band music from the jungle interior. The playlist title comes from the Maroni River–the river that divides Suriname and French Guiana, the place where all these sounds meet, and the lifeline of the Bushi-Negue people. Enjoy!

If there was any expectation that life would improve for singer-songwriter Caroline Spence after winning American Songwriter’s Lyric Contest and releasing a stunning 2015 debut, it’s squashed early. On the opening track of her sophomore album, Spence laments that “empty glasses and empty promises/ filling up my nights but in the morning I just want to forget.”
That’s bad enough, but it only scratches the surface of tunes that express doubt about relationships even after a promising start (“Southern Accident”), the inequality of women in the boy’s club work and play place (“Softball”), and lamenting over lost romance (“just sitting here writing songs wondering where the love went” from the relatively jaunty music of “Wishing Well”). But while the concepts that fill Spades and Roses are generally melancholy, Spence’s lilting voice, finely (and fiercely) crafted lyrics and sure sense of melody will grab and hold the attention of the most bubbly, Pollyanna-ish listener.
Even more romantic entries, such as the waltz time “Slow Dancer,” where a first date turns from doubtful to perhaps finding love at first sight, reflect a sorrowful heart, helped in large part by the somber strings producer/drummer Neilson Hubbard brings to this and a handful of other tracks. His light touch spotlights Spence’s voice and lyrics while adorning the songs with wonderfully laid back tinges of keyboards, bass, percussion and snakelike whiffs of electric guitar. This less-is-more approach is particularly effective on “All the Beds I’ve Made,” where the singer thinks she has finally found a stable lover (“good love is easy, like falling asleep”) even as she laments past mistakes that got her here, all wrapped around the creative metaphor of beds.
Things turn dark fast on “You Don’t Look So Good (Cocaine),” one of this disc’s most musically upbeat yet lyrically frightening selections as she warns her partner to stop using the titular drug because “some people can handle it, oh honey, you can’t” atop a backdrop of Petty-styled chiming guitars. The album ends on yet another unresolved note in “Goodbye Bygones” as Spence lets a lover go, knowing that the relationship is over (“This love was made for the past/ and there’s no sense looking back”) as ruminating piano lines and brooding strings reflect the song’s inherent sad, if inevitable, consequence.
Clearly, Caroline Spence won’t be the life of your next party. Yet her sparkling, sweetly expressive voice, meticulously molded lyrics and an uncanny ability to detail conflicting emotions within beautiful, intimate songs creates an album of stunning beauty and lasting impact.

Shake Away (Spanish: Ojo de Culebra) is the sixth studio album by Mexican singer-songwriter Lila Downs. It was released on September 2, 2008 on Manhattan Records. After attaining international success in 2001 with her first English record, Border, Downs wanted to release a fifth Spanish-English language project as its followup. In the vein of her earlier work, the album is heavily influenced by latin pop, world music, flamenco and rock. Downs enlisted Paul Cohen as executive producer, also working with Celso Duarte, Brian Lynch and Aneiro Taño.

The second album – first on Todmorden-based label Basin Rock – by much-acclaimed New Zealand-based Nadia Reid fits the template mastered by the likes of Neil Young and Joni Mitchell light years ago perfectly; the level of naked yearning and blue feeling evident on tracks such as “Ain’t Got You” is pretty much off the scale.
Preservation is also very, very good, certainly strong and distinctive enough to rise far above the myriad clichés we have by now come to associate with songwriting as a confessional and a personal inventory.
Один из самых изысканных музыкальных проектов Sacred Earth не очень давно выпустил еще один диск, в котором, правда, вы не услышите мантры, потому что он полностью инструментальный. Зато на нём присутствует большое количество красивой, изящной музыки со звуками природы. Лидирующим инструментом выступает индийская бансури-флейта, медитативные мелодии на которой извлекает Джетро Вильямс. Спокойная умиротворяющая атмосфера погружает в состояние легкого медитативного транса и полностью расслабляет.
Протяжная флейта и синтезатор погружают слушателя в царство вечного блаженства. Совершенство музыкальной гармонии и чувственного восприятия
