images/2017/02/6315.jpg
www.reverbnation.com/spaghettieasternmusic
Can techno-bebop-metal-fired instrumentals co-exist with vocal tunes inspired by the madcap geniuses of ‘60s pop? What if you added ambient soundtracks a la Morricone/Fripp and clavinet-singed funky blues from the P-Funk playbook? Top it off with acoustic ballads where smiley melodies camouflage bitter lyricism about broken love, often rendered in off-beat tunings, and you sorta begin to complete the recipe. They can and do on “Sketches of Spam,” the 16-track, 69-minute, genre-surfing debut release from Spaghetti Eastern Music (Bad Egg Records, 30003), the solo project of New York-based guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Sal Cataldi.

images/2019/06/13113.jpg
www.facebook.com/Xkinabur/
X-Kinabur is a collective of young Burkinabè artists living outside Burkina Faso, as its name indicates. Indeed, X-Kinabur means "expatriates" for X and Burkina for Kinabur. Therefore, X-Kinabur means "expatriates from Burkina Faso" to designate all Burkinabe living outside Burkina instead of words like "adventurers" or "diaspora" that sometimes have a pejorative connotation. As a result, we have one of the artists who lives in France more precisely in Bordeaux, and the other three in the United States, left on Maryland and Texas.
