Order Dirtmusic's album 'Troubles': https://glitterbeat.bandcamp.com/album/troubles
'Troubles' is the title track from Dirtmusic's new album from Dirtmusic. The album was recorded in Bamako, Mali, in September 2012 during the high-tension and tragic recent crisis - hence the name, 'Troubles'.
There are many voices telling stories on 'Troubles', singing in Songhai, Bambara, Tamasheq and English, stories of war and peace and love and doubt in the shadow of an oncoming storm, and like a musical version of cinema verite, everything is real, in-the-moment and utterly direct. Inspired by the collision between West African rhythms, digital sorcery and rock'n'roll, Troubles is a singular and border-slicing musical journey. And Troubles is only the first release from the sessions, with a second volume in the pipeline for a release on Glitterbeat in early 2014.
Song 'Troubles' was written by Keith Hudson.
Video was made by Paul Austin.
