I have a couple of interesting eclectic mixes for you. During the first hour, I’ll be giving away a pair of tickets to the upcoming release party for the new CD by RVA’s own Afro Zen All Stars.

Tickets are gone!

In the second hour, we’ll go on the road with Le Yapi Jazz of Cote d’Ivoire and many others in Volume One of a possible series of programs devoted to the classiest bands, the “Jazz” bands of Africa. We’ll go to the two Congos, Tanzania, Guinea and more.

Pile of random LPs on my floor, music from Gabon.

We start out here in the west with a couple of songs from Colombia and Guadeloupe, then we’re going to dive into some music from Gabon. Hopefully you’ll hear something new to your ears as I pick and choose through LPs and CDs.

Later we’ll hear a few songs from the Essiebons label of Ghana and, if there’s time, more more more!
