Inside today's edition you'll meet the most famous female voice from Mozambique you've probably never heard of - Mingas! That is, unless you are from Mozambique, or neighboring countries in Southern Africa, and also maybe Portugal. I sat down with her in Maputo for a great interview. My vintage tune from the early 1970s is karanga storyteller and kalimba player Stephen Gumbo. His baboon story will fascinate and entertain you for sure. Song of the week is "Bolanle" by Zlatan from Nigeria and Kwame Ofori joins me in presenting that fresh new Naija hit. All of this plus more music: Mayra Andrade (Cape Verde), Rema (Nigeria), Jah Prayzah (Zimbabwe), Toto ST (Angola), Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni Ba (Mali), Garifuna Collective (Belize), Black M X Sidiki Diabaté (Guinea/France), Magic System (Côte d'Ivoire) and Ejatu X That Boy Jay (Sierra Leone/US).
