KENYA SPECIAL

This week on Africa O-Ye! we explore a brilliant new compilation from the Soundway label.    "Kenya in the 1970's: benga, soul and rumba collide and merge with tradition and culture.  Musicians arriving from neighboring Tanzania, Congo and Zambia to record in East Africa's booming musical hub. In a country where the 45rpm seven inch single rules over the LP, literally tens of thousands of records are pressed.

The World Meets Africa

Over the years there have been many fruitful musical collaborations between Africa and the rest of the world.  Sometimes as the result of expatriate African artists working in Europe or America.  Other times it's been westerners traveling to the continent to work with African artists.  We'll hear Indian vocalist Kiran Ahluwalia's recent work with Tinariwen (she will be here at the Alberta Rose Theatre April 24th)...  Also, American guitarists Henry Kaiser & David Lindly recording with Rossy of Madagascar...  Malian kora maestro Toumani Diabaté working with Taj Mahal, the Flamenco group Ketama, and avant-jazz trombonist Roswell Rudd...  American jazz singer Dee Dee Bridgewater recorded in Bamako with local luminaries...  Bluegrass/jazz banjo player
