A few video treats

Today I was browsing the readers’ forum of the late British DJ, Charlie Gillett, and came across a few video treats…

Boubacar Traore

The wonderful Malian guitarist/singer will be at Hugh’s Room, Oct. 3. A nice, short video clip here

Kandia Kouyate

An amazing clip of the Malian griot at the age of 18. She’s the mother of Montreal singer Tapa Diarra. A Ye Sira Bila

Otis Redding

A timeless voice. The fashion sense… maybe not so timeless. 1966, A Lover’s Prayer“. Same year, rough video, gritty soul. Stax/Volt Revue in London.

B. B. King

At the top of his game. Sing Sing Prison, 1972. “How Blue Can You Get?”
