Jali Bakary Konteh is a kora player and singer from Brikama, Gambia. He comes from a griot family, which includes some of the world's most renowned kora musicians. And now in 2010, he gets the remix treatment courtesy of some fine folks from across the globe.

Rewiiiiiiind: earlier this year we shared a dozen or so individual studio tracks from the track “Combination”, an interesting combination – pun somewhat unintended - of traditional kora playing with an afrobeat jam session flavor. Following Jali's debut album, 'Konteh Kunda', produced by Bay area musician Steve Pile, we are now proud to release this fine selection of remixes.

TRACKLIST:


01 – COMBINATION (HATNHOODIE REMIX, DE)
Hatnhoodie are best known for running the www.hatnhoodie.de blog, where they discuss – in German – the latest and greatest in the bubbling tropical scene.

02 – COMBINATION (ARTFX! REMIX, DE)
Berliner Artfx! has been making beats for well over a decade, but only recently did he get into more tropical type sounds. A pungent, fast-paced take on Combination.

03 – COMBINATION (VOLTERGEIST REMIX, UK)
He's back, you may remember Voltergeist from the Ze Bula Remix EP. We just love his dark, dubby reworks of these African sounds. Get ready to sink in...

04 – COMBINATION (SENOR OZ REMIX, USA)
Oz, known to stand behind the decks at his weekly San Francisco party Afrolicious, also contributes to the Six Degrees blog, and – apparently! – also makes pretty great beats!
