African Rhythms, KFAI 05/19/11

May 19, 2011

Gearing up for a summer of great shows we heard a set of contemporary desert blues on today’s edition of African Rhythms with tracks by Tinariwen and Bombino (coming to the Cedar in July) and Tamikrest (whose leader, guitarist Ousmane Ag Massa, first heard Tinariwen when he was five years old). Bill brought in some rare party music from Tanzania, Jojo shared some tracks from Kenya and Uganda, and we started off the whole thing with new music from two formidable sons of African superstars, Vieux Farka Touré and Femi Kuti. You can hear the show for two weeks via MP3 stream at the KFAI site.
