Olivier's current selection is:
Is Yeelyel
by Dur Dur Band
Dur Dur Band was a legendary Mogadishu group that disbanded when war came to Somalia in 1990, scattering the members all over the world. Well, amazingly they're back together and the gig I saw in Camden at the weekend was simply phenomenal. Various original members, some Somali musical royalty sitting in as guests and I think one or two 2nd generation Dur Durs, too.
Over the last couple of years various tracks and an LP or two have been reissued but I wasn't prepared for the amazing sound, groove and energy of the live show. Ironically, I seem to have chosen a VHS video with the worst sound ever but Dur Dur videos are few and far between. I hope they'll do some more shows, they're too good to disappear again.
