Free track from the new Compilation-Audio Refuge Compilation

"Encompassing a wide variety of sounds including traditional African and Arab folk, reggae and dub-step, hip-hop and new cumbia, the SF-based Stronghold Sound presents its first in a line of releases, The Audio Refuge Compilation. Each track is both experiment and firm step in a direction that this group of global artists is putting forth to lovers of tradition and the dance floor.Among the tracks on the release are a handful featuring the talented Alpha Oumar ‘Bongo’ Sidibe [Guinea] and his blend of Manding Roots and Afrobeat rhythms played by the solid Wontanara Revolution group. Gnawa Kronik [Tim A. Fuson, Ahmed Khouja] puts forth a couple tracks exploring the Saharan musical tradition along side renowned musician and imaam, Yassir Chadly [Morocco]. North-African groove band, The Dunes, gets a horn remix courtesy of dub Snakkr [Syria], who also puts forward a few grimey audio treats of his own including a couple featuring the lyrical skills of Iggy Mon [Trinidad]. "

This is great track by Bondi Blaster, "Salchichón Primavera (Feat. Tami)". Posted with permission. Enjoy!
