Friday Tunes: Roots Volume III

Adelphoi Music, 2 months, 3 weeks ago

Adelphoi Music's Jonathan Watts takes us on an eclectic journey of old & new, overlooked and perhaps lesser known tracks

Friday Tunes: Roots Volume III

Whilst this selection of tunes boasts an all star line up of Kendrick Lamar, Kaytranada, Parliament, Tribe Called Quest, Chet Baker, Ryuichi Sakamoto , Nils Frahm & Elmer Bernstein, it explores an eclectic journey of old & new, overlooked and perhaps lesser known tracks.

Some of them may challenge the perception of music rooted in African musical culture such as Nils Frahm ‘Hammers’ which has no percussive elements but the song suggests rhythm throughout. With Jazz improv being a key influence in the artist's music. 

Enjoy the journey!
