I’ve managed to amass a hefty collection of travelling music. Usually, I do this by picking up a random burned cd in a souq or from some slightly shady looking guy with a giant backpack wandering the streets quietly calling, “Hey lady, wanna buy some music?”
Why yes, yes I do, Sir!
This time though, I’ve come across an album that makes me want to travel.
The Very Best is a collaboration work between a Malawi-born artist and other musicians around the world (you’ll recognize some of them) and it’s kind of awesome. Instant happiness. “Super Mom” is my favourite track, by the way.
So my advice is that right now, you need to go and download the album.
