"Bamako Beat Talk - SPACEWALK"























New album release by Roadmusic Productions 2015 Bamako Beat Talk by Spacewalk

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CD - 08/15RM



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-Synthesizesound  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.

Roadmusic's AfroBeat Releases 2016 - 2020

History of AfroBeat:


AfroBeat,  is a Rhythm which originated in WEST AFRICA . It SPREAD  AND DEVELOPPED by travelling up the Niger River. Thats what we believe here in Mali.

The Manding Empire was founded in the 13th Century by the emperor Sunjata. It swept from one end of West Africa to the other, from Casamance on the Atlantic coast all the way to Burkina Faso, thousands of miles to the east. Sunjata used music to bind all his disparate peoples together. Music became a formidable political tool and turned the hereditary Mandingue musicians or djelis (griots) into a powerful caste. Today, having survived centuries of change and disturbances, that caste is still flourishing. Drawing on themes as old as the Empire itself and melodies learned in childhood, the modern griots still mediate for social order.


AfroBeat is a rhythm which originated at the source of the RIVER NIGER Guinee/Mali. Originally from the Wassoulou Beat, travelled all along the Niger River to Nigeria, where it was melted with "The Yoruba Clave" and synthesized by Great Artists like Fela Kuti and Tony Allen with Ghanian Highlife/ Palmwine music to the magnificent AfroBeat Orchestra Sound; the AfroBeat developped in the USA to the wellknown "Funk Beat"; interpreted and performed gloriously by the great James Brown. All of these Music are characterized by Pentatonic Scales/Harmonies and the synchopatic accent on the two beats - the syncope and on the one or vice versa. The newest evolutions of Afrobeat and Pentatonic Music through transculturations of Anglosachs Music using electronic Instruments/Digital Tools can be seen in; Rap / Hip-Hop and Trap. (Marco Romano)

The Cultural Journey to Timbuktu /52 min.

This documentary illuminates the importance that cultural activities and music have to the people of West African countries like Mali. Shortly after the recent rebellion and the increase of extremist activity in northern Mali, culture and music is being repressed as means of expression. The rich cultural heritage of the once strong and peaceful Mali is slowly declining into oblivion. Music is nowadays an important source the people of Mali is trying to preserve. This film shows the effects and consequences that Western strategies in the disputed areas have had on Mali society and culture.
