Take a sampling of some of the latest Afro-pop releases on this edition of New Sounds. There’s acoustic guitar-based Senegalese blues from Nuru Kane, along with sunny lively tunes from the French-Madagascan trio Wa-Zimba. Also, savor a taste of Zimbabwean pop with reissues from the guitar-rooted 70’s pop stars the Green Arrows, and the Hallelujah Chicken Run Band, featuring one Thomas Mapfumo. And of course, lots more.
