June Hymn (Tour, AthFest CD, Afropop! & Nutria)

Back from three weeks in lovely Nicaragua.. from the coastal hills of Carazo to the mountains of Matagalpa, old cowboy town Jinotega, and Estelli, it’s become one of my favorite places. Got a few new Nica songs coming down the pike.

In other news, I’ll be going into the studio this week with Athens’ pop masters and fellow Cowboy Angels, Nutria, to start recording a new record. Expect the process to take a few months at least- we’ll get one session in in June and will pick it up again sometime in August.

And, in case you missed this back in April, check out Afropop‘s April Mixtape, featuring an unreleased track from the upcoming Mali album, Dugu Wolo, called “Djon Si Sekote”. That’s Abdoullaye ‘Kandiafa’ Kone, a young master, on ngoni.

Looking for the as-yet-untitled Mali documentary trailer? Here ya go: FILM TRAILER.
