If you aren’t yet registered at Calabash Music – or maybe you are but you haven’t stopped by in a while (guilty) – you need to know: They are going nuts over there with the free MP3s!
Calabash is offering two FREE downloads per day, while maintaining an available roster of 10 at a time.
In other words, go there today and you’ll find free music by Mickey Hart’s Global Drum Project, Brazilian guitarist Juarez Moreira, the Cuban reggaeton group Eddy K, a Malagasy musician named Modeste, and much much more. (Well, six more.)
Is there room on your hard drive for some global groove music?
Yesterday, Calabash made available a track by Kofi Ayivor, a master drummer from Ghana. Ayivor was a member of the Afro-rock band Osibisa during the 1970s. He has recorded with Eddy Grant, Jimmy Cliff and Angelique Kidjo.
The free MP3 is “Adzagli (Jungle Funk),” a swinging late-’70s jam. Click here to stream it on my Vox blog.
Follow this link to Calabash Music to download it for your very own. But move with deliberate speed; it'll only be up for a few days.
