The first of two special shows around UN International Women’s Day (March 8). This show focuses on the music of South African women. From the early jive of the Mohotella Queens to the jazz of Dorothy Matsuka, Judith Sephuma (pictured), and Miriam Makeba to the urban sounds of Busi Mhlongo, Brenda Fassie, and Freshlyground — as well as lots of other artists. Plus new releases and sneak previews of upcoming albums (Cascadia ’10!) in the second hour.
