Sub-Saharan Vibes

Monday 9:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Genres: World, African, Afro-Beat
Host: Cornelius Ejimofor

STILL NOT AN AFRO-POP SHOW! King Sunny Ade, Fela, Miriam Makeba, Master Drummers of Dagbon, people whose names we don’t even know. From the modern to the ancient. Your hosts try to prove that African Music really is a “Vast Sprawling Cornucopia of Sound”. Fortunately, that’s not an especially hard task.
