African Rhythms, KFAI 04/07/11: Pledge Drive!

We are getting tantalizingly close to reaching our goal of $80,000. It’s the 13th and penultimate day of the KFAI 2011 Spring Pledge Drive and Charlie, Jojo and I along with Deborah and Bill continued to make the case for listener partnership with community radio. Along the way we heard a lovely new track from the Moroccan-born singer Malika Zarra (now based in New York) plus cuts from Souad Massi, Sara Tavares and Vieux Farka Toure.
