Global A Go-Go presents:

Wednesday December 12 is Jamhuri (“Republic” in Swahili) Day, one of three days on which the Republic of Kenya celebrates its independence; the others are Madaraka (“Self-Governance”) Day on June 1 and Mashujaa (“Heroes”) Day on October 20.  Three times the pleasure, three times the fun, I guess.

In honor of Jamhuri Day, Global A Go-Go celebrates with two hours of music from Kenya.  I’m not making any attempt to provide a comprehensive overview of Kenyan sounds — I’ll be playing the Kenyan music I dig the most.

And most of that fits into the broad category of what East Africans call musiki wa dansi — no translation needed, I’m sure.  There are a bunch of different genres: benga, Swahili rumba, kamba.  They’re all guitar-driven, closely related to Congolese soukous and, in my opinion, thoroughly addictive.  I’ll dip into a few other styles as well: some folky/worldy stuff, soul, funk and even hip hop if time permits.

A podcast of this week’s program will be available soon at http://www.radio4all.net/index.php/series/Global+A+Go-Go.

Hey Listeners,

Wow where did that come from? I was still working on raking and had to shift to full snow removal operations. Fun day off from work though. Hope you had a great day. I look forward to entertaining you for the next two hours. Enjoy!
