Music collective C'mon Tigre has a new single out featuring Sean Kuti, son of Fela Kuti. "The Botanist" features a mixture of South American music and African jazz, but at no point does it sound like what you would think of as world music. It has elements of typical world music, but "The Botanist" sounds like something all its own. It has so many elements from so many musical styles and genres that it sounds both familiar and completely fresh. C'mon Tigre have crafted a song that sounds like an organic version of a collage of samples as the song meanders along through different musical elements. Even if you typically hate international music or jazz, you need to check this one out.
