This weeks Unheard Africa set on Global Grooves

Another one of my regular features on my show is the Unheard Africa set, where I play vintage, obscure tunes from Africa. This week I'll be playing a tune from Alex Konadu's International Band, from 1983. Also a couple of tracks from the Luambo Makiadi release Editions Populaires, 10th Anniversaire 1965-1975. And finally, I'll be playing a couple of tracks from Malian musician Ama Maiga, a really great late 1970's fusion of traditional kora and modern pop.

This weeks Global Hit of the Week

"A collective of producers gathered by Damon Albarn visited the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in 2011 to produce a new album for Oxfam. T-E-E-D (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs), Dan the Automator, Jneiro Jarel, Richard Russell, Actress, Marc Antoine, Alwest, Rodaidh McDonald and Kwes all made the trip with the plan - to make an album in 5 days: Kinshasa One Two."-from
     I will be playing two killer tracks off of this brand new release on Saturdays edition of Global Grooves. This is a great, brand new release and I'm really excited to premier it on Global Grooves, 89.9 FM in Boise, ID and worldwide on I will also be playing a brand new track from Buraka Som Sistema.
