This is a special show in tribute to my mentor, Akenataa Hammagaadji of First World Music. He helped me get this show on WVKR and has been a constant source of inspiration. This week he ended his African music show on WVKR after thirteen years. In celebration of First World Music, today’s show is entirely comprised of music from the African diaspora. Songs from Cape Verde, Algeria, Haiti, Guadeloupe, Zimbabwe, Senegal, Benin, Mali and beyond.
Today’s show is filled to the brim with great international sounds. Music from Cuba, Colombia, Nigeria, Benin, Senegal, USA, Mozambique, Norway, Sweden, Zimbabwe and beyond. A sequence of tunes you won’t find anywhere else.
