In this special holiday seasons 2019 episode you'll hear an array of seasonal songs and features that to fire up the holiday season. The first half hour is packed with popular hymns and secular songs from Africa and the second half opens into the African diaspora with great Christmas jams from Jamaica, Cuba, Brazil, and the United States. Bill Odidi brings us special Christmas cheer from Nairobi with an interview with Ivlyn Mutua. She talks about her new debut album 12 Beats of Christmas. Our vintage tune "Jehowa Mya Fe Mawu" comes out of Togo. It's unique recording by the late Leo Sarkisian of presbyterian Evangelist Kojo.
