We debuted new tracks from the Touré-Raichel Collective (great new acoustic music from Vieux Farka Touré and Idan Raichel), Céu and Mo Kolours on today’s edition of African Rhythms on KFAI. Along the way we made time for classics both well known and obscure from Alton Ellis, Orlando Julius, Mbilia Bel and Edzayawa. 2 hours with Brad and Charlie, streamable at the KFAI site.

African Rhythms, KFAI 04/28/11

April 28, 2011

We started off today’s African Rhythms with a radical reworking of the Beatles’ Blackbird (“Dead of Night” by Mauritian percussionist/singer Mo Kolours) and kept things moving in eclectic, serendipitous directions including cuts from Omar Sosa, Abdou Guité Seck and Céu (all with upcoming or ongoing Minneapolis performances). You can hear the show via MP3 stream for the next two weeks at the KFAI site, where you can also check out the complete playlist.
