This week’s African Rhythms is an exploration of Afrobeat: its birth and development over 40 years ago and countless modern incarnations, from the earliest music of Fela Kuti and Tony Allen to today’s artists like Antibalas and Ocote Soul Sounds who draw upon the rhythms of Afrobeat as inspiration for their music. Melanie Marshall from the cast of Fela! joins us during the first half hour. The show is streaming at the KFAI site for two weeks.

Tonight’s edition of Temposphere was 2 hours of soul drenched music — both modern and vintage — from around the globe, including tracks from such worthies as Antibalas, Pat Thomas (represented here by the mighty 10 minute track Yesu Sau Bra), Orgone, Alton Ellis and a host of others. As always there’s a 14 day window to hear the show via MP3 stream at the KFAI site where the complete playlist has been posted (it’s here too, after the cut).
