Global world rhythms to Roskilde

Three exotic acts add extra spice to this year's music programme.

Global world rhythms to RoskildeThis Wednesday’s names may be far off the beaten track compared to many of our recent music announcements. Nevertheless, the ethnic spice is a steady part of Roskilde Festival's programme – and so it will be again in 2010.

BASSEKOU KOUYATE & NGONI BA (MALI) use the ngoni instrument – a sort of African lute or banjo that has been the griot tradition’s accompaniment for hundreds of years. This ancient instrument gets a boost through wah pedals and effects boxes as the almost constantly smiling Kouyate lets his rhythms draw the audience in.

MEXICAN INSTITUTE OF SOUND
(MEX) mixes electronic, Western club beats with mariachi, cumbia and other South American elements. Anchorman Camillo Lara’s fearless and unpretentious juggling of genres and styles may be reminiscent of Fat Boy Slim or Basement Jaxx – only wearing sombrero and with a bottle of tequila under the mixing desk.

ORCHESTRE POLY-RYTHMO DE COTONOU (BEN) combine rhythms from their country's ancient voodoo rituals with funk and soul, which are equal parts James Brown, Fela Kuti and the coastal capital Cotonou’s own, psychedelic beat. One of Africa's best and most legendary bands started their first European tour recently. The band's ecstasy-inducing dance music has already won over Western supporters, for instance Franz Ferdinand who has jammed with the older Beninese.
