6/16/2011 African Rhythms


There's been a surge of powerful music from the sub-Sahara in the last few years and one of the finer pracitioners is the Malian group Terakaft. We heard a cut from their new CD Aratan N Azawad on today's African Rhythms, along with new music from Karl Hector the Malcouns, a track from the forthcoming K. Frimpong his Cubano Fiestas vinyl reissue and much more.
