In this episode Heather says goodbye to 2019 and hello to 2020 with a cool collection of songs from across the continent. You’ll hear some brand new tunes like “Happy New Year “ by Amaze from Liberia, “Anjagala” by Maro from Tanzania, and “Ijipita” by Winky D from Zimbabwe. Also mixed in are some classics by Shaluza Max, Cesaria Evora, and Kanda Bongo Man. In the middle of the hour Heather takes us into a bit of retrospection on gains and losses from 2019; gains like new albums and breakout artists with a special nod to African women, and losses of music legends who passed away in 2019 such as Johnny Clegg, Oliver Mtukudzi, Ayub Ogada, DJ Arafat, and more.
