Today’s edition of African Rhythms on KFAI featured a set of music from some of South Africa’s greatest female voices, going back to a 1964 LP by Miriam Makeba (The Voice of Africa) and fast-forwarding to contemporary stars like Simphiwe Dana, Thandiswa, and Lira (singing a lovely pop song in Zulu). We also heard a couple of tracks from M.anifest’s forthcoming album plus the usual eclectic mix of sounds from the continent and beyond. You can hear the show for two weeks at the KFAI site.
