The show starts off with a couple of new tunes from all over: Annie Flore from Gabon, Haji Madawa from Zanzibar (Tanzania) and Aar Manta from Somalia via UK. We’re also premiering a great compilation of Somali 70s singles from the Light & Sound label, out now on the brand new label Afro7 from Finland. Special guest in the first hour is Delasi, Ghanaian born artist living in Nairobi (Kenya) who merges soul, hip hop and other influences into a powerful stew. His first full album #ThoughtJourney is out now, and Delasi talks via Skype about how it came about.
