Afropop Worldwide

Afropop Worldwide is the award winning Public Radio International program hosted by Georges Collinet from Cameroon and heard on over 100 stations in U.S. From its start in 1988, the program coined a new term, Afropop, and gave Americans their first exposure to now-legendary artists: Youssou N’Dour, Angelique Kidjo, Salif Keita, Hakim, Khaled, Chico Science, Cesaria Évora, Thomas Mapfumo, Oumou Sangare, and many others. The series continues to take listeners and web users to Tanzania, Senegal, Egypt, Nigeria, Brazil, Morocco, Haiti, Colombia, Suriname, South Africa, South Florida, New York, the Dominican Republic and beyond. More recently, the National Endowment for the Humanities funded Hip Deep sub series uses music as a lens to explore history, religion, spirituality, politics and more. And we continue to showcase exceptional emerging artists from Africa, the Caribbean and the Americas.
