The Tunisian-Norwegian combo.

I had to rush out this podcast, so not much talk from me this month. But more space for music. A long sequence of music with some sort of Mediterranean connection to start with. Zemeken, Checkpoint 303 and Yazan Al Rousan all have some sort of Tunisian connection. Zemeken is a Tunisian collective of amateur musicians, Checkpoint 303 is based around Paris-based SC (SoundCutter?) MoCha and Yazan Al Rousan is Jordanian, but lives in Tunis. Natacha Atlas of Transglobal Underground fame is a Belgian, but with Arabic ties.

I didn’t find enough material for a full podcast while checking the links from Tunizika — so to contrast the lush first 20 minutes, I finish off with a Norwegian double of Lasse Marhaug (of noise duo Jazzkam(m)er) and Serena Maneesh.
