Led by Malawian singer Esau Mwamwaya, with music by English producers Radioclit, this trio suggests it’s time we retired the dusty pre-Internet term ”world music” and call it what it is: globalization pop. Following songs with Vampire Weekend and M.I.A. on 2009’s Warm Heart of Africa, they’ve tapped Senegalese star Baaba Maal, French–South African DJ Mo-Laudi, and Canadian-Somalian rapper K’naan for a fun mix of Africa’s urban grooves, Europe’s club beats, and America’s hip-hop swagger in MTMTMK. There’s nothing particularly revolutionary about their sunny dance party, but in this One World, One Spotify Playlist age, it feels like a sign of the times. B
