If Music Could Talk - May 3, 2015

The Motherland Influence May 3, 2015 The Beautiful Day and I’m Not Sneezing Edition.

It's a Beautiful day. Better yet, I'm not sneezing. Open those windows and share the sounds of African, Latin and Caribbean Music.

Just came back from vacation in Louisiana. I came back with a bunch of music for you but I think I left my brain there. Just walked out the and left all my music at home.

So the first set I'll be winging it. I'll start with some Old and new sounds from Cameroon dedicated to William 'Defense' Yombe of the Richmond Kickers Soccer team.

I'll also have something from Tal National based in Niger. If you get a chance to see them live I suggest you do so.
