The Mandé Diaspora in New York City, Part Two

In the second part of Afropop's exploration of New York's Mandé community, we look at the lives Mandé artists have made for themselves in America. This program deals with the urge to escape community to experience American life and music. We also explore the strains of being undocumented and unable to travel. We'll hear more from ethnomusicologist Ryan Skinner, and focus on music by Balla Kouyate, Balla Tounkara, the Mandingo Ambassadors, Fula Flute, Brewed by Noon, Kakande, Source and more.
