Best of 2012 and dj:ing at Nada bar!

This blog has not been as updated as I had hoped, but hopefully next year will be better! Anyhow, I have still listened to music. Here is my annual top 100 list of the year, this time of course for 2012! I should also mention I have started dj:ing at a new club. Nada Bar at Åsögatan in Stockholm is the new place and my next gig is on Monday January 7th at nine to twelve. Welcome! / The Drumming Cat

One of my favourite Swedish tracks so far this year: "Tell her she´s the light of the world" by Winhill/Losehill. Couldn´t find any video of the song except this live recording from late 2011.

Every region is a good music region - Southern Africa

From now on I will go through every region of the world and present a suitable playlist for that region. The inclusion criteria is that the song or band name has to have a connection to the region, an album has been recorded there or simply that the act is from that region.

The regions are the same as the UN definitions.

I will begin with Southern Africa, the home of Miriam Makeba. She is included with a couple of other acts from the region and one song is about South African city Johannesburg. But there are a couple of inclusions which deserves some more explanation.

Paul Simon recorded much of his album "Graceland" there and the hit "You can call me Al" is included.

Zimbabwean Zeke Maniyika was part of my favorite band, the Scotts in Orange Juice. Two songs where Zeke provides the vocals are included.

The Brittish band Manfred Mann was named after their keyboardist from South Africa with the same name.

Another Brittish band, Kaiser Chiefs are named after the South African soccer team Kaizer chiefs. Kaiser Chiefs are from Leeds and well known South African international defender Lucas Radebe played for both Kaizer Chiefs and Leeds United. Possibly thats why they named the band after the club.
