We started the show with a new track from Kae Sun, born in Ghana and living in Toronto (his new EP is available as a free download here), heard a set of Bachata from the Domincan Republic and some great Nigerian reissues, plus music from Kenya, Uganda, Cape Verde and points beyond with Brad, Jojo and Charlie.
