Rita's World Season 2 Episode 9 Mon, 2011-07-18 13:33

Sounds of Summer, sun drenched and languid or firin’ red hot , we all keep keeping on, smiling through the hardship ala Roland Tchakounte”s Soukous Blues and the stonking new release by East African Legend Samba Mapangala. Then there is the gritty down tempo defiance of Ghost poet and Burundi singer songwriter Steven SogoNdaje – I am Here! We wish the newly independant south Sudan well in the years and millenia to come with an offering from Pan-Africanist Setona and a fond Farewell to Cuba’s manuel Galban, magician of the guitar the quiet storm that ran through Cuban music and beyond until the 7th of July 2011.
