African Rhythms, KFAI 03/24/11

It was a full contingent at African Rhythms today on KFAI with Salif, Jojo, Charlie and myself taking turns spinning great African music from the past and present. I brought in tracks from Ebo Taylor, Los Chicharrons, and a great young Touareg band called Tamikrest. You can check out the show via MP3 stream for two weeks at the KFAI site. Playlist follows.
