She funded the project herself, thanks to her "Genius" award, traveling through West and East Africa, along with Madagascar. Listen as she arranges music by Malian guitarist Boubacar Traoré and another Malian guitarist, Habib Koite.

New Releases, December 2010

Thursday, December 30, 2010

It's the most wonderful time of the month!  John Schaefer sifts through the steady stream of CDs that have flooded his office to find a sampling of new releases worthy of showcasing in tonight's New Sounds program.  From here we can see some acoustic Afro-pop, a heaping helping of Balkan-inspired jazz, Balkan-informed indie rock, and the Sway Machinery, featuring Khaira Arby.  Plus, new music from Stephan Micus, and a Clean Feed release, Billy Fox’s Blackbirds and Bullets.
