April 19: Afro Roots w/ N3NIM

Last week Nenim and I went back to back for an afro roots mix session, playing music from the African continent, focusing on analog sounds from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. From the horns and guitars of Ebo Taylor (Ghana) and the deep afro-jazz of Solomon Ilori (Nigeria), to a percussive workout from Jean-Marie Bolangassa (Democratic Republic of Congo) and the heavy guitar-driven afro-rock of Tal National (Niger). Plenty of dancefloor heat.
