The Pan-African Hour: Journey to East Africa (Feb 9, 2011)

We start our adventure with Geeves and Dan Forth aboard an airplane heading to a mysterious fabulous party, when suddenly their plane is shot down and they crash land in Uganda, where they are greeted by a Jewish village and entertained with music. The villagers give them some robotic donkeys to ride and they set off across East Africa, encountering many people, from friendly boat captains to MIA, searching for a way back to Canada. Along the way they hear lots of great music from Uganda, Kenya, Somalia, Tanzania, Mozambique and Malawi.

Pan-African Hour: Mbalax (Feb 2, 2011)

Mbalax is a style that developed in Senegal in the late 70s. Moving away from the Cuban craze that had gripped Senegal in the 60s and early to mid 70s, Bands such as Etoile de Dakar, Super Diamono and Xalam paved a new direction which borrowed from Wolof traditional rhythms, mixing these with elements of African-American music and rock and roll. Tracks from this episode are taken from the magnificent African Pearls series put out by Syllart, specifically the albums Musical Effervescence and The Teranga Spirit.
Omar Pene & Le Super Diamono - Maaduleen
Etoile De Dakar - Tolou Badou Ndiaye
Gelewar Band - Wallou!
Xalam - Daida
Diarama De St. Louis - Xaste Waroul
Etoile de Dakar - Thiapa Thioly
