The Sounds of Africa

April 8, 2006

Here is a Podcast of some of the multi-faceted music of the continent of Africa. This one-hour program travels from the dance club music of the 1950s perfected by bandleader Franco to the African blues of Ali Farka Toure and the electrified tribal rhythms of Toureg refugees Tinariwen (pictured). Click here for a PDF of the set list and a description of the artists featured in this program.
