African Rhythms, KFAI 09/01/11

A late-70’s Nigerian cover of Fela’s Zombie and Omar Souleyman’s storming new collaboration with Björk opened the proceedings on today’s edition of African Rhythms on KFAI. Lawyer Bill brought in some music from Tanzania (where he’s returning shortly), Jojo spun tunes from Uganda and Kenya, I mixed in a bit of Kuduro from Angola and soukous from Cape Verde and it all turned into a rather rhythmically propulsive two hours. You can relive it all via MP3 stream by simply visiting the KFAI site.
