I asked the main actors of this here blog (mostly musicians, of course, but also friends, family, support-givers…) to provide me with a list (5 to 20 albums) of their favorite records of the year.
The results are slowly coming in. There are surprises, resemblances, similarities, incongruous choices… I’ve left the responses intact, exactly as I received them, along with my friends’ comments. So here goes:
Zeid Hamdan: musician (Soapkills, New Government, Control Z, 3Arab), producer, promoter
“for sure !!!!
they were not released in 2008 but that’s what i’ve been mostly listening to this year not in order of preference:”
CD 1 Bassekou Kouyate segu blue
CD 2 Radio head in rainbows
CD 3 Lumi two tears in water
CD 4 Portishead (the latest)
CD 5 Cedric Im Brooks And The Light Of Saba
CD 6 jon kennedy ( mostly to his myspace , he has no cd s here..)
