Infectious Grooves #37 features a.o. Detroit-based Latin jazz percussionist Francisco Mora, who was part of Sun Ra's Arkestra from 1973 to 1980; 'Safe Passage', a fascinating audio-visual project born out of loss, for which producer Frits Wentink and photographer Erik Madigan Heck collaborated with Tilda Swinton; Pakistan-born, Brooklyn-based composer Arooj Aftab, whose liminal sound floats between classical minimalism and new age, Sufi devotional poetry and electronice trance, jazz structures and states of pure being; 'Antidotes 2', the latest EP of London-based singer, songwriter, composer and cellist Lucinda Chua (cover), on which she expands her unique sonic vocabulary with subliminal textures; the "progressive Gregorian" chants of Catalan folk duo Tarta Relena, on their album 'Remixos', featuring a.o. Jon Talabot, MANS O and Garru; the reissue of Japanese modern jazz saxophonist Kohsuke Mine's 1970 'First' album, released by BBE; New York-based musical collective Innov Gnawa, that is dedicated to exploring Morocco’s venerable gnawa music tradition; Ana Frango Elétrico's unique blend of garage rock guitars, breezy bossa nova and thoughtful lyricism; 'Woman', the collaborative track of British hip-hop and R&B artists Little Simz and Cleo Sol, "a soulful love letter to women around the world"; and many more.
