9/22/2011 African Rhythms


Fatoumata Diawara's lovely new CD Fatou hit record store shelves in the UK on Tuesday and our mailbox on Wednesday (nice job Royal Mail + USPS!). We heard a couple of tracks from that record on today's African Rhythms, along with a set of contemporary Afro-Latin-Salsa-Cumbia cuts from the USA and the usual eclectic mix of music from the continent and beyond.
