Along with new music from Brasileiras Marisa Monte and Maria Rita and a tribute to Barry Llewellyn and The Heptones in the first hour, we spent the second hour of today’s African Rhythms surveying the breadth of music from contemporary African female singers including Cesaria Evora, Souad Massi and Dobet Gnahore.
Getting into the holiday spirit…and jamming on the new Mungo’s Hi-Fi Forward Ever album; the first release (Bunny Lee & the Aggrovators) from the new King Spinna record label; and a Heptones set in memory of the great Barry Llewelyn who died on November 23rd.
