African Rhythms, KFAI 05/12/11

We heard a track from Vieux Farka Touré’s forthcoming CD The Secret (produced by Soulive’s Eric Krasno) along with music from Tuareg guitarist Bombino (opening for Tinariwen at the Cedar on July 8), Cesaria Evora, and Les Nubians (supporting their new CD Nu Revolution with a tour that includes two shows at the Dakota) on today’s edition of African Rhythms. You can hear the show for 2 weeks via MP3 stream at the KFAI site (where you can also find the complete playlist).
