Afropop Live 2013 Highlights
Over the course of 2013, Afropop’s producers recorded more great live music than we’ve managed to place in shows--until now. This program features ear candy from Ghana—Gyedu Blay Ambolley live in Accra, and palm wine guitar innovator Kyekyeku; live tracks from the 27th edition of Montreal's Nuits d’Afrique, including an ecstatic summer night with the Skatalites; and highlights from Afropop’s 25th anniversary gala with Samba Mapangala, Bassekou Kouyate and others. Less talk, more music, as we sample some of the most spellbinding performances of the year.
