A Romp around the Motherland with big dollops of Malian music featurig Invisible System Samba Toure and BKO. A little stop over in Zambia with Namvula before indulging in lush vocals of Samthing Soweto. Our dear Oscar Kidjo who did so much for the music of Benin has left us and will be dearly missed by all who knew him especially his family. Listening Wind sung by his sister Angelique is featured in this episode of Rita’s World. Orchestra Mangelepa play their first ever London show on the 24th of July, have a listen to their song Mbungu.
