Today’s edition of African Rhythms on KFAI featured a set of music from some of South Africa’s greatest female voices, going back to a 1964 LP by Miriam Makeba (The Voice of Africa) and fast-forwarding to contemporary stars like Simphiwe Dana, Thandiswa, and Lira (singing a lovely pop song in Zulu). We also heard a couple of tracks from M.anifest’s forthcoming album plus the usual eclectic mix of sounds from the continent and beyond.

9/15 in a nutshell…
The Mixtress, Sami Koivikko and Mutant Frogs got the beatmix treatment in Hour 3, sometime after The Frits delivered quite possibly the only non-ska treatment of GotchaSKAvered September selection You’re Wondering Now you’ll ever hear, hot on the heels of a rocksteady-fied 4@4. Sherwood recently snapped up Senor Coconut’s Around the World from which we heard a Prince cover (not Buster, mind you, but Prince). Jaymz Bee took care of business, as did Lester Lanin (dropping an ad jingle medley on non-commercial radio listeners’ sensitive ears!) …oh, and are you feelin’ a change in the air? That’s Shiina Ringo and her jazz pals the Pimps (Soil @ Pimp Sessions, to be precise). La-la-la-la-la! In the Ooh, we heard the other Special Beat (the one not made up of 2Tone vets) and more of the finest ska of the ’60s, ’70s and early ’80s. Oooooh, yeah!
