Justin Adams & Juldeh Camara Tell No Lies May 11th

The new album by Justin Adams and Juldeh Camara "Tell No Lies" will be released by Real World Records on May 11.

"Tell No Lies" is the place where the deep roots of African music nourish the raw electric groove of rock and roll, where Gnawa spirit rhythms come up against Chicago distortion, West London howl and a Sahel Wail. Following the critically-acclaimed 'Soul Science' (for which they won a BBC World Music Award) this second album takes them deeper into their own special world - no academic experiment but a genuine fusion of musical souls.

To launch this exciting new release, Justin Adams and Juldeh Camara will be playing at London Jazz Cafe on Wednesday 13th May.

They will both be touring extensively over the coming months so check our tour dates page for the latest updates.

Nitin Sawhney chooses Mustt Mustt on The Book Group, BBC Radio 4

Comedian, broadcaster and GP Dr Phil Hammond hosts the show, The Book Group, where he asks each of three guests to play the track of their choice for the delight or disdain of the others.

This week's guests included musician and composer Nitin Sawhney, whose choice was The Massive Attack remix of Mustt Mustt by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. This track features on the Qawwali master's Real World album, 'Mustt Mustt'. It was also Real World Records' first single release (complete with home made artwork by 3D of Massive!)

Having popularised this beautiful and inspirational music to a worldwide audience, with this album Nusrat explored various Western styles and rhythms, to which he brought his own Asian approach. Produced by Michael Brook, who also plays guitar, "Mustt Mustt" is a unique meeting of international talent.

Hollywood tonight - Dengue Fever screening.

It's short notice, but if you or someone you know is floating around Hollywood tonight, this screening of 'Sleepwalking Through The Mekong' at Amoeba's Monday Movies sounds like the place to be. There will be a Q&A after the screening with members of the band who will sign copies of the CD/DVD.

Sleepwalking Through the Mekong follows Los Angeles based band Dengue Fever on their recent journey to Cambodia to perform 60s and 70s Cambodian rock n' roll in the country where it was created and very nearly destroyed. The odyssey is a homecoming for singer Chhom Nimol and a transformation for the rest of the band as they perform with master musicians and record new songs along the way.
