Rhythms Del Mundo: Africa

The latest in a series of albums remixing A-list pop with regional styles (see Rhythms Del Mundo: Cuba), this has a Mali-centric house band, and the effect is sweetly disorienting: Chris Martin’s “Viva La Vida” vocals meet galloping drums; Mumford & Sons play their English chorales against a South African equivalent. It doesn’t always click. But it’s a righteous and illuminating culture clash.
