    AFRICAN MUSIC. Centrada fundamentalmente en el África negra, la lista recorre sonidos llenos de ritmo, ternura, espiritualidad y, como no, reivindicación política. Canciones del gran Fela Kuti, Tony Allen, Malatu Astatke, el afro-beat, los sonidos de Etiopía, etc. A spotify list: http://playlistspotify.wordpress.com/2014/02/02/african-music/

    I would like to see the long birth certificates of Manu Chao and George Harrison. Surely they are both extraterrestrial? I kindly urge the last.fm staff to delete this derogatory tag.

    People who say they like "world music" shouldn't be allowed to have a passport.
