Happy New Year!

SOUTH AFRICAN FREEDOM SONGS. Music has played an important role in liberation struggles the world over. In the South African struggle against apartheid, song was especially powerful. Celebrating the life and work of Nelson Mandela, this week on Africa O-Yé! we look back at this musical legacy. We will hear selections from Abdullah Ibrahim and Sathima Bea Benjamin, Miriam Makeba, Hugh Masekela, and many more. In the mid-section of the program [starting at about 1:30] we will air an hour-long radio documentary 'South African Freedom Songs' produced by Lucie Pagé in 2000. The documentary features the voices of Desmond Tutu, Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu, Ronnie Kasrils, and many others. This week's host: Andy Hosch

Stern's Africa has recently released a terrific retrospective on  the music of Joseph Kabasele, 'Le Grand Kallé -curated by Ken Braun.  During the first hour on this week's Africa O-Yé!  we will explore highlights from this collection.  Listening to this new compilation inspired me to revisit other vintage Zaïrean rumba too, so I've put together a playlist of some of my favorites for the second hour of the show.   host: Andy Hosch

*All 
Kabasele selections are from "Le Grand Kallé", Stern's Africa, 2013
