Our last regular episode of the year leaves you with some absolute crackers from all corners of the sonic spectrum. We’re delighted to open with the first record from new Moroccan label L’Amme, which has been set up to celebrate music of Amazigh heritage.
Other than North African footwork, elsewhere we check in with Dr Pete Larson’s nyatiti project, have a taste of Japanese gqom from T5UMUT5UMU on Kampala’s Hakuna Kulala label, and we also touch upon Chilean oceanic music, mutant body techno, and an absolutely spectacular collaboration between Belgium’s Slumberland and Tuvan throat singer Sainkho Namtchylak.
You can listen to the first six tracks for free. To listen to the full episode, get a huge back catalogue of music, and access to our live shows and Discord group, please join our Patreon: patreon.com/independentmusicpodcast. The podcast only survives with Patron support
