Africa in America 2010-2011

In a new edition of Afropop's popular music-in-diaspora series, we catch up with a wide variety of US-based acts playing African music.


We hear stateside African hip hop from Blitz the Ambassador and Baja and The Dry-Eye Crew, R&B gone Ethiopian from Tommy T, Afropop meets indie rock from LA's Fools Gold, and the latest Mande rock from Toubab Krewe of Ashville, North Carolina.

Also featured, Max Wild's bubbling Zimbabwe boogie out of New York City. Plus new work by African artists resident in the US, including Cheikh Hamala Diabate (Mali), Abdoulaye Alhassane Toure (Niger), Malika Zara (Morocco), and Razia (Madagascar).
