African Rhythms, KFAI 08/25/11

Starting off with a percussive blast from Trinidad, today’s African Rhythms on KFAI careened around the globe, tracking musical influences and trends that completely disregard borders. The show features a vintage 70’s Afro-rock set, taking in cuts from Cymande (pictured above), Blo, Mandrill and Santana, plus much more. You can hear the show for 2 weeks at the KFAI site.
