African Rhythms 06/05/08

Found myself in Studio Four at KFAI again today, sitting in for Salif and Charlie on the African Rhythms show. The outstanding new compilation Nigeria 70 Lagos Jump was featured, along with a plethora of beats from Mali, Madagascar, the US, and lots more vintage Nigerian music.
