World Vibes (deel 2)

Nonstop de beste latin, reggae, afrobeat en andere wereldse muziek. 

De komende maanden gebeuren spannende dingen in de nacht op Radio 6. Totdat de stekker er echt uit gaat hier in Hilversum, zullen we namelijk specials gaan maken. Vooraleerst worden die 's nachts uitgezonden, maar uiteraard worden die ook online uitgeserveerd. Houd daarom deze pagina in de gaten, voor onder andere World Vibes Specials, Jazz Vibes Specials, Neo-Soul Vibes Specials en alle andere radio- en online specials die we hier bij Radio 6 maken en gemaakt hebben.

Lekker om mee te werken

Onze Bart Slim trapte in mei 2015 af met zijn hiphopspecial over The Art of Storystelling, waarin hij in drie uur de oorsprong van rap uit de doeken deed. Onze tweede special was een vijf uur durende nonstop playlist met zogeheten World Music, dus de beste latin, reggae en aanverwante stromingen die in een zalige volgorde zijn geplaatst. Lekker om mee te werken of bij een borrel op de achtergrond af te spelen, waarbij we niet kunnen verzekeren dat heupen niet gewiegd worden of voetjes van de vloer niet van de vloer gaan. Hier vind je deel 1 van de World Vibes Special en geniet van nog eens twee uur van deze special. Caliente!   

Binnenkort zal onze Jaap op regelmatige basis in een special de nieuwste releases op het gebied van World Music laten horen. Hou de site daarom in de gaten. 

Uur 3

Goed om je stem weer te horen, Andrew. Ga zo door, vooral met het draaien van muziek waar jezelf helemaal achter staat, zoals Garnett Silk. Don't give up your good taste ! En smokkel er af en toe ook wat lekkere vette Afrikaanse muziek tussen door. Succes.

New single - Mandela The Madiba on Nelson Mandela International Day

Dear Madam/Sir

I am writing from Melbourne, Australia to introduce Mandela the Madiba - a celebration of Nelson Mandela’s life and legacy - to you.

Mandela the Madiba is a brand new song that highlights the sacrifices Nelson Mandela made and the many political and cultural activities he initiated to make the world a more just and tolerant place.

With lyrics written by me and music composed by Niko Schäuble, the recording features contributions from artists from Australia, Africa, Sri Lanka and Europe.

For details of the song please refer the Fact Sheet provided at the end of this message.

My intention is to celebrate Mandela’s life and to reflect the diversity he much valued. Though he was born a South African and contributed his life to the cause of South Africans, he has been an influence on the people of the whole world. Through music, this song reflects Mandela's acceptance of cultural diversity.

The launch will coincide with Nelson Mandela International Day (first celebrated on July 18 2009, following a unanimous decision of the United Nations General Assembly) on July 18, 2015. For more information, please visit http://www.mandeladay.com

Sincerely
Lionel Bopage
