Short Description: 
Real World Africa

Launched in 1989, Real World was founded by WOMAD and Peter Gabriel to provide talented artists from around the world with access to state-of-the-art recording facilities and audiences beyond their geographic region The musical relationships generated at WOMAD festivals gave Real World Records confidence that something of this special spirit could be translated into a recording context.  Most of the label’s releases are recorded at Real World Studios where the live interactive spaces provide an environment capable of capturing the excitement and vitality of musicians “in performance”.  Today on Africa-O-Yé! we explore a diverse cross-section of the label's of African releases.   Artists will include Ayub Ogada, Farafina, Geoffrey Oryema, Hassan Hakmoun, Hukwe Zawose, and Maryam Musal.  host: Andy Hosch
