Join Alban Low on a journey across Africa, from Algeria to Zimbabwe, one country, one record at a time.
Take a trip with me to The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau and Kenya. This week we hear from the Globetrotting Ghanaian musician who earned the title The Divine Drummer; the leader of a pioneering dance company who was imprisoned in a Guinean concentration camp; and the Kenyan musician who wrote and recorded one of the most popular songs in Africa.
