Diaspora Jammin'

The best underground black music from the U.S., Brazil, the U.K., the Caribbean, and Africa

10. DJ Cheb i Sabbah,La Kahena(Six Degrees). Break out the baba ganoush, falafel, and pointy slippers. After thoroughly exploring the trancelike qualities of Hindustani music, original world beatnik Cheb i Sabbah turns to the trance-like qualities of the Arabian diaspora, bringing "les voix du Magreb" to the forefront with an intoxicating excursion into Moroccan gnaoua style. Gently stitching electro-dub layers onto traditional rhythmic garb, La Kahena fits like a disco-ready djellaba — its flavorful beats and beautifully melodic vocals make it the musical equivalent of chicken tajine.
