African Rhythms, KFAI 07/14/11

Michael Kiwanuka was born in London to Ugandan emigrés a mere twenty-three years ago. He’s just released his first EP, Tell Me a Tale, from which we heard the soulful track I Need Your Company on today’s edition of African Rhythms, along with a rich assortment of other music from South Africa, Niger, Mali, Mauritius and points beyond. The entire show is available as an MP3 stream at the KFAI site for two weeks.
