Now entering chat range: The Funk

This evening Mon­day Night World Music brings you a diverse selec­tion of funk and oth­er dance­able beats from around the world. The clubs of Nige­ria burst into an explo­sion of funk after James Brown’s famous vis­it to Lagos in 1970. His influ­ence began with the great Fela Kuti and spread through­out Africa, con­tin­u­ing today in sounds as diverse as West African pop queen Angelique Kid­jo and the street sounds of Kwaito com­ing out of South Africa. In the mean­time, that infec­tious down­beat found its way into music from Latin Amer­i­ca too, and even the Mid­dle East and India were not immune.

So please come join us tonight, 6–8:30PM SLT, for a Funka­li­cious evening. 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!
