Get your pan-African groove on with current and classic hits from Nigeria, Algeria and Mali; upbeat neo-traditional tunes like "Fundamentals" from Kenya and "Loubé" from Guinea; and great songs by undiscovered artists like Junior Gentle from Uganda. Today’s featured artist is none other than the Golden Voice of Africa Salif Keita! He joined me in the studio earlier this week here in Washington and talks about a few of his songs ("Tonton", "La Difference" & "Ko-Yan"), the struggles of people with albinism in Africa, and how Africa needs it's young artists. and Song of the week “Dia De” by Gato Preto will definitely charge up your batteries and wait till you hear our Vintage Tune from the MTIA ARCHIVE – it takes you back to 1968 Uganda where an Adhola musician plays the most beautiful Tongoli harp!
