Afropop Live! 2017
Here’s Afropop’s annual roundup of great live recordings we’ve captured over the past year but haven't found time to air. We'll hear live tracks from our recent fieldwork in Nigeria, highlights from the Nuits d’Afrique festival in Montreal, the Sacred Music Festival in Fes, Morocco, and the Africa Now! festival at New York’s Apollo Theater, as well as intimate recordings of the kora/cello duo Ballake Sissoko and Vincent Segal. From a Hausa traditional jam in northern Nigeria to rowdy Congolese rock from Mbongwana Star in New York City, expect a rich platter of sounds. Less talk, more music!
