Oswin Chin Behilia is the best-known singer from the Netherlands Antilles island of Curaçao. In his socially-motivated songs, he searches for the identity of the people from this sun-soaked island. He often criticises the Dutch government in his lyrics. His pugnacious texts are wrapped in a sunny and sweet sounding mix of salsa, bolero, calypso, soca and zouk.

Mamar Kassey is a group from Niger which combines various West African traditional music styles with jazz and blues elements and places traditional instruments opposite modern instruments such as guitar and bass guitar. This results in powerful desert blues with enchanting song lines and hypnotic rhythms
.

 

The Djelimady Blues Project plays intriguing Malian blues led by guitarist Djelimady Tounkara. He became famous as a solo guitarist in the legendary Super Rail Band. With his Djelimady Blues Project he focuses on the acoustic sound of the traditional Malian styles. His swinging melodies in combination with the splendid way his accompaniment plays with the notes give this acoustic music an irresistible unique West African drive and blues feel.
