Weekly Playlist 11: FUN!

As the title suggests, there’s a lot of fun to be had in this week’s playlist, not least from Vince Staples whose song suggested the title, but also Vampire Weekend’s return single and a classic, Bambi, from Prince. There’s a few to intrigue too, including Nativity from Elysia Crampton, full of an array of strange sounds, Min We Tun So (Slow) from Benin’s Orchestre Poly-Rhythmo de Cotonou and Mali’s Toumani Diabaté on the kora (a 21 string African lute). Finally, to mark the problematic, but entertaining, Green Book in the cinema, a track from the film’s subject, Don Shirley.

Enjoy!
