[APWW PGM # 662] It's been more than two years since Afropop last surveyed the African sounds making waves in America. This program plays catch-up by putting the spotlight on a few of the standouts. From electronic dance and pop to old-school roots grooves and Afropop revival bands, spiced with remixes, collaborations, and off-the-wall connections--music drawn from across the African continent is thriving in US towns and cities. Including afrobeat from the Souljazz Orchestra, Cheick Hamala Diabate's experimental traditionalism, Alec Lomami's Congolese-American Dancepop, and with a special focus on Bombino's collaboration with Black Keys guitarist Dan Auerbach on his 'Nomad' album.
