In this edition you’ll hear amazing, current music and music news from Cameroon, Nigeria, Tanzania, and Egypt and then I take you inside the music scene in Accra, Ghana where I chat with three of its top stars: Stonebwoy, Samini, and Lamisi, plus the popular Radio Presenter Prince Benjamin of Class FM 93.1 FM. Song of the week "Nzira Nago" is by Maro from Uganda who recently celebrated 10 years of success in the music industry. Kwame Ofori joins me to present that and finally, we go New Orleans, Louisiana – USA. Mardi Gras takes place February 25th and we explore the city’s iconic street, brass-band music of that annual festival with reporter, Tom Roche. Connections to the music of Benin, Senegal, Belize and Haiti wrap up the New Orleans feature, and the show, with a diasporic panorama of brass band and drum orchestras.
