The 6th Album Bamako Beat Talk by the international band Spacewalk, reunits the roots of Roadmusic's musical family. This album featuring Miss Maawa from Mali/Wassoulou, Kerfala Kante jr. from Guinee/Conakry and a member of the first Spacewalk formation, DeLab from Scotland/Glasgow.
This album presents some new voices and 70's Korg-sythesizersound from the ethnic techno band Kufuki from Japan/Tokyo, the saxophonist/Peul-Flutist Nils Lidman from Sweden and a new Griot voice from Bamako, the singer and guitarist Adama Kouyaté. By a blend of Afrobeat- Wassoulou, Mandingue with European jazz, instrumental and upbeat dance music; Spacewalk is a testament of our time. Sung in Bambara, Susu, French and English, the songs were born in different times, across borders in different countries. All pieces have come together along the Niger river, home of the crocodiles - Bamako/Kati. The integration of these different music styles, rhythms and cultures into one band characterizes the sound of the band Spacewalk. Roadmusic Productions' vision of connecting cultures around the planet with music is evident in this collaboration of global musicians.
The songs from the album Bamako Beat Talk also became the soundtrack of Marco Romanos music documentary The Cultural Journey to Timbuktu.
