African Rhythms, KFAI 07/21/11

On today’s episode of African Rhythms we heard some examples of Naija — contemporary Nigerian pop music — and a track by Nkulee Dube (Lucky Dube’s daughter) who merges South African tradition with reggae and pop. There’s much more music and chat in the two hour show which can be heard for two weeks at the KFAI site.
