African Rhythms, KFAI 11/17/11

November 17, 2011

Joni Haastrup’s take on psychedelic Afro-rock with his Nigerian band Monomono (and later as a solo artist) is the focus of three stellar new reissues from Soundway/Tummy Touch. On today’s African Rhythms we heard a couple of tracks from those records, along with new music from Congo courtesy of Damon Albarn’s new DNC Music project pairing Western producers with contemporary Congolese musicians. That and much more awaits you via the MP3 archives at KFAI.

African Rhythms, KFAI 10/13/11

October 13, 2011

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.
