What is making me happy today – Afropop Podcast

By | February 2, 2016

Someone recently introduced me to the Afropop podcast. It is one of those things that, as a sampler (some might even say lover) of music from Africa and music of the African diaspora, I wonder how I just got to know about.

The first one I listened to is a deep dive into the African history of the bass (here’s a link to the mp3 file). The second is a whirlwind tour of current hits on the continent – from Lagos to Nairobi to Cairo to Jo’burg. From then on I’ve been going through the archives.

Really, do your ears a favour and check the podcast out.

And oh, the website itself has a host of other goodies – events, articles, interview, etc.
