Various Artists Maga Bo: Confusion of Tongues
- Words: Matt Earp
- Label: S
Challenge the Dominant Monoculture is world citizen Maga Bo's credo, and it runs across the top of this mix CD, my favorite of 2006. Confusion consists of half original tracks (either Bo's collabs with MCs or his Sonar Calibrado partner Filastine) and half music from kindred souls like Enduser, Slaughter Mob, Nettle, and Timeblind. He blazes through it all stunningly-like a next-generation Bill Laswell, he manages to touch on every conceivable musical and lyrical style, reaching across South America, Africa, and Europe, through jungle, dub, and hip-hop. Grab your local ethnomusicologist or corner-rhymin' kid and play this for them-repeatedly.
