This year, we are launching a new tradition: a year-end show that looks forward rather than back. We’ll ask artists and others to tell us about something new they discovered in African music this year; something that points to the future. The answers range from rising-star artists, to changes in the industry, to revelations about artists and styles that have been around, just not noticed. We’ll hear from Angelique Kidjo, Dendé, Fally Ipupa and many of the artists we met at WOMEX 2022. Produced by Banning Eyre.
