2011-09-09: Music of Coastal West Africa

This show is a musical journey across Coastal West Africa, from Senegal in the north to Nigeria on the southern end. We mixed it up with both new and old music, to give a sense of the wide variety of music as we journey through time and through different tribes and nations.

Special congratulations to the listeners who won tickets to see Eliane Elias this weekend!
