African Rhythms, KFAI 12/15/11

December 15, 2011

Along with new music from Brasileiras Marisa Monte and Maria Rita and a tribute to Barry Llewellyn and The Heptones, we spent the second hour of today’s African Rhythms surveying the breadth of music from contemporary African female singers including Cesaria Evora, Souad Massi and Dobet Gnahore. You can hear the show with Brad, Jojo and Charlie via MP3 or RealAudio streams at the KFAI site.



Global Beat, KFAI 07/07/10

July 7, 2010

The EBS machine took over the last few minutes of today’s Global Beat with some kind of demonic loop but you can still enjoy most of the two hour mix of reggae, samba, afrobeat and chicha via MP3 streaming at the KFAI site (available for two weeks). The playlist is posted both there and here, after the break.
