African Rhythms, KFAI 04/14/11

Thanks to everyone who pledged their support to African Rhythms and KFAI – we surpassed our goal and now can get back to what we do best – play great music! Jojo and I (along with Charlie in the second hour) took us on an eclectic tour of West, East, South and North African sounds, both old and fresh. You can hear the show via MP3 stream at the KFAI site – the playlist is posted both there and here.
