Move that coffee table out of the way and let loose. Musical inspiration from Haiti, Sweden, Norway, Scotland, Egypt, Malawi, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Togo, Senegal, Mali, Romania and beyond.
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.
