Afel Bocoum – Avion (World Circuit) 

Release Date: Out Now

From Malian guitar legend Afel Bocoum comes a song about flying that is full of lightness, air and freedom. ‘Avion’ clatters along with vibrant percussion and rattling guitar notes and Bocoum’s almost hypnotic vocals making for a heady, escapist experience. There are some call and response sections which are a lot of fun and the accompanying video also adds to the experience massively with its collage style presentation of snapshots of African life in 2020. There is joy, life and a real sense of weightlessness in this track that I needed to hear today – maybe you do too….
