Today’s playlist comes from 9 different African nations. You'll hear neo-traditional music from South Africa, Angola, and Mali; a classic IJAW song in the middle of the hour; and some of the best current dance tunes Africa has to offer! The showstopper is a nice, long chat with the world renown Senegalese artist Baaba Maal! At :35 into the show Baaba talks about his own music festival Blues by the River and most recent album Traveler. Finally, a duo of two female Ghanaian gals gets our Song of the Week spot. Find out who they are and hear their awesome new single at 50 minutes past the hour.
