Happy Mother’s Day!

To celebrate our mothers, we have all music by women from all over the diaspora.

Every song is from a different country because we all have mothers!

Late Mbaraka Mwinshehe of Tanzania

WELCOME!

We’ll focus on African music today with a couple of songs from Colombia thrown in.

We start with some older music from Cameroon: some makossa and then some bikutsi.

Music from Senegal, Tanzania, Kenya and more.

Music today comes from LPs, cassettes, CDs and digital releases.

 

Thank you for donating during our Spring Fund Drive!

As of right now, we are still a couple of hundred dollars short of our goal. Love what you hear?

You may still donate and receive the premiums (other than great independent programming).
