African Rhythms, KFAI 06/11/09


I sat in for Salif and Charlie today on African Rhythms. We featured cuts from many of the great African CDs that have been coming out this year (Oumou Sangare, Vieux Farka Toure (above), Amadou And Mariam, Mulatu with the Heliocentrics, Rokia Traore…) plus a couple of tracks from the forthcoming Nickodemus album. The program is available for the next two weeks as an MP3 stream at the KFAI website here. Playlist follows the break.
