African Rhythms, KFAI 07/28/11

Malian singer Mamani Keita has a new CD coming out next month (a collaboration with French producer Nicolas Repac) that promises to make some waves on the world music scene. We heard the cut Demissen Koulou from that album on today’s African Rhythms, along with a Swizz Beatz remix of Seun Kuti’s Rise Up and a track from NRBLN: Welcome to the Madhouse which features Berlin-based producers working with Kenyan hip hop artists. There’s lots more on the two hour show which can be heard as an MP3 stream for two weeks at the KFAI site.
