literally every tribe in Mali sounds like this
>>
Rec me some tribes that sound like this, I want to get more into African music
>>
>>61912202
just fly to africa

>>61912179
Mali is also one of the poorest shitholes on Earth. If those niggers didn't suck at everything but banging the drums they'd be able to market their music properly and make some money on it. Sucks to be them, not my problem.

the only good thing about this album is that jon hassell plays on it

>white artists do thing black artists already do
>acclaim from everyone while nobody gives a shit about the black artists who originated it

What did all of rock music and its consumers mean by this?
>>
>>61912179
That's called White Privilege.

Brian Eno is also someone who loves taking advantage of it.
>>
>>61912300
it's a pleasure to listen to, but it borrows too much from african tribes and it is too repetitive

syncopated drumming? yeah, but repetitive nonetheless. ends up being just enjoyable dance music, apart from the last song which is talking heads doing joy division. although the song with the albatross imagery and screechy sounds is pretty good.
>>
>>61912319
see >>61912268

The only people who can make me care about "black artists who originated x" are those black artists themselves.

I'm not gonna look for them because of some dumb phony guilt. If I'm interested enough in whatever leads to those artists, I will sure find them anyway.

Not him but MY favorite Fela album is Confusion/Gentleman and it's myopic to examine just the polyrhythms composed of the bass, rhythm guitar, drums and horns. David Byrnes lyrics, vocal tone and use of inflections as well as Adrian Belew's wild guitar and Bernie Worrell's keyboards make this record completely unlike anything out of Africa. Fela's records are great in their own way. The claims that Talking Heads just did a copy paste are just bullshit.

I associate Mali with pleasant guitar music

do you really like remain in light that much?

how can you listen to the overload and not think about how it sounds like something of Joy Division's Closer, like low-tier Decades?

once in a lifetime is a throwaway song, too.
>>
>>61912818
I do like RIL, but that wasn't my point. I was just disproving your/OP's point that it was purely derivative.

You did pick the album's weakest songs in my opinion to critique. I don't listen to those very often, but they were attempting different styles and in the case of Once in a Lifetime, it was both unique and resonated with a lot of people to the point where it became massively influential--even iconic for its time.
>>
>>61912287
What's diahorreah, is that like a worse version of diarrhea?
>>
>>61912179

Man, I love the Talking Heads

you know there are parts of africa where these things are not an issue.

Yes, you can catch it from toilet seats. You have to put barbed wire down the toilet.
>>
>>61913594
I hope so...I can only pray for Africa.
>>
this album wouldn't exist without african people's unending creativity and musicianship

talking heads are just a bunch of plagiarists who used african art to further their career and to give some life to their boring, soulless, contrived white people music. fuck these privileged morons.

what about kendrick? is he our savior?

>White music for the white people

Leftist fascism is bullshit. Don't want to listen to them? Don't!

But when you keep injecting artificial context into all art you encounter, you enter into a fascist reality where every expression needs to convey a political identity: namely yours.

You want to recommend some more "authentic" music, go ahead. But no art should be disqualified from the public discourse strictly because of the artists background.
>>
I just posted an example of REAL musical plagiarism in another thread.

Enjoy!

Ghana has a decently high standard of living in their cities, it's just that when you go out into the countryside you come across the stereotypical small farming village-type comunities.

How could they be such a hyped up band when they only have two decent albums?

>[album] wouldn't exist without [influential album/musical movement], so therefore it is bad

77 is better than them both and More Songs is better than Fear of Music.

Nice try though

>>61913726

>whitey always be stealing our shiiiiit
>we wuz about to go in space when yall wuz being made in caves

Every medium ever was based upon borrowing (or plagiarism, if you'd like) elements from other songs and incorporating them in a new way. I know you're b8ing but some people are actually retarded enough to say this unironically.
>>

I meant cultures, not songs, but I'm sure you get the idea.

for those that don't know this meme
>"I heard the piece Aphex Twin of Richard James carefully: I think it would be
very helpful if he listens to my work Song Of The Youth, which is electronic
music, and a young boy's voice singing with himself. Because he would then
immediately stop with all these post-African repetitions, and he would look
for changing tempi and changing rhythms, and he would not allow to repeat
any rhythm if it were varied to some extent and if it did not have a direction
in its sequence of variations." -Karlheinz Stockhausen

>>61912391
where's the fucking patent that apparently the entire continent of africa filed for all syncopated rhythms ever

>>61912391
what is wrong with repetition?

I guess you dont like house...

Try Salif Keita. The golden voice of Mali. Really is

Actually it's Socio-Economic Privilege, it just so happens that European Imperialism happens to be propogated by white people, on account of y'know, Europeans being mostly white.

The distance between African Tribes living in 3rd World Nations and Western 1st World Nations is much larger than issues strictly relating to race, and using the shorthand of "White Privilege" which only really applies to a massively Americentric worldview is retarded.

If Japanese Musicians had Appropriated the sounds in a critically acclaimed work; even in a localized environment it wouldn't be White Privilege, and yet there would be no clamouring to label it as "yellow" or any other privilege based on factors of race as prescriptive.

Now just imagine if the Mongolian Empire didn't fracture.

I agree with you partly though.

>Stockhosen was a sampling pioneer, all hiphop music is stealing from whites!

>Diatonic scales and polyphonic harmony are european inventions. Ergo jazz owes its roots to europeans!

>Africans playing sax, sax is european, blacks stealing white culture !!

>Microphones are a white invention, any black that records music is appropriating white culture !

You're an idiot.
