African Rhythms, KFAI 06/30/11

There was new music (including an Ethio-jazz style cut from São Paolo’s Da Cruz) and plenty of old favorites from Ghana, Senegal, Mali, the Congo, Uganda, South Africa and points beyond on today’s summer-scorched edition of African Rhythms. The show is available for two weeks as an MP3 stream at the KFAI site, where you can also check out the playlist.
