Afropop and Afrobeat — Monday Night World Music

in Daily Programme

by rieladmin on Monday, 20 December, 2010

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!
