My special feature this week is “Les Souffleurs” – a fascinating live band of traditional Samo flute and drum music. I promise you’ve never heard anything like it!  You’ll hear from the leader of the group who explains the meaning and history of the music. Reporter Bram Posthumus from Segou, Mali reports. Also enjoy current Afropop, Afrobeats and live band tunes by artist like Aya Nakamura (France/Mali) and Teta Diana (Rwanda); classic highlife music (Ghana), benga (Kenya), and Song of the Week "Yalta Mi Seppa" by Tati Tati of Guinea.
