Africans in the Snow

A performance inspired by Africa and hosted by Ms. Kenna at Patrick’s Cabaret in Minneapolis. This independently produced show featured spoken word, live music, dance and more, with a focus on the African diaspora. The theme “Africans in the Snow” comes from poem by Louis Alehemayu, who was inspired by a photograph of two Somali women in a snowy Minneapolis parking lot.

During the first hour we listened to a program on the music of Khorassan Iran produced by Dan Rein and Baktash Boghrati
During the second hour we had Gabe Barnett and the Big House Rounders performing live.

     Today our co-host for a day was Irv Worcester of Minneapolis who brought in some music and stories to share.

Karl plays some Cajun and then some Zydeco. Followed by new releases from Jess Lege and Le Fere Michot.

Tribute to Dave Ray, August 17, 1943 – November 28, 2002
