Afropop and Afrobeat — Monday Night World Music


Tonight’s Mon­day Night World Music heads to Africa for a sam­pling of some of the best pop music and funk the world has to offer. If you’ve heard Afropop or Afrobeat before you know how amaz­ing it is — and if you haven’t, you don’t want to miss this show.

You’ll hear leg­ends like Oliv­er Mtukudzi of Zim­bab­we, Manu Diban­go of Cameroon, Angelique Kid­jo of Benin, Fela Kuti of Nige­ria, Julu­ka and Miri­am Make­ba of South Africa, and much, much more. Also in the mix — some of the next gen­er­a­tion of stars of African music, like Nige­ri­a’s Asa, Cote d’Ivoire’s Dobet Gna­hore, South Africa’s Fresh­ly Ground, and even the NYC-based afrobeat band Antibalas. And a whole lot more.

Come hang out with Carter and enjoy the toe-tap­ping sounds tonight from 6–8:30PM SLT. You can join Carter in world at Mad­hu’s Café Indi­en, or lis­ten in on Radio Riel’s main stream. Hope to see you there!
