African Rhythms, KFAI 10/13/11

The wave of lost African gems from the 70s being rescued from obscurity continues and on today’s African Rhythms we heard deep cuts from El Rego (Benin) and Joni Haastrup (Nigeria) alongside shiny contemporary pearls. The show is available for two weeks as an MP3 stream or RealAudio at the KFAI site.
