African Rhythms, KFAI 03/17/11

The curator of the Surface Noise blog has joined the African Rhythms team at KFAI and today was my first show with Charlie and Jojo. We started off with a couple of tracks from the sizzling Angola Soundtrack compilation from Analog Africa and moved through music by Super Mama Djombo, Tony Allen, Chiekh Lo and lots more. The show is available as an MP3 stream for two weeks at the KFAI site where you can also find the playlist (here too, after the break).
