December 2015 African Rhythms Archives

New music from Baaba Maal, Tinariwen and Ziminino plus an extended set of Congolese soukous to keep you warm on this winter day.

It has been a great year for new music — on today's show we look at some of the best releases of 2015 along with a generous helping of vintage classics.

DJ Ali (aka Egyptoknuckles) is our special guest today, bringing a heady mix of ancient to future sounds. 

Our Chrismas Eve show features some vintage African American gospel tracks plus a Congolese/Kenyan Christmas soukous along with plenty of other joyous music from around the world.

Happy New Year from African Rhythms!
