A World in London - Episode 55

Koliko player and composer Atongo Zimba joined Ritu on the first A World In London after a long holiday break by SOAS Radio. Describing his musical journey from northern Ghana through Fela Kuti’s infamous Shrine club in Nigeria and then onto busking the streets of London, Atongo’s story is gripping. He also spoke of unity inspired by the recent Olympic & current Paralympic Games defining summer in London 2012.
