We debuted new tracks from the Touré-Raichel Collective (great new acoustic music from Vieux Farka Touré and Idan Raichel), Céu and Mo Kolours on today’s edition of African Rhythms on KFAI. Along the way we made time for classics both well known and obscure from Alton Ellis, Orlando Julius, Mbilia Bel and Edzayawa. 2 hours with Brad and Charlie, streamable at the KFAI site.
