Afrosonic Taxi: Yasmin Levy, Minyeshu, Aster Aweke
90.7-FM in NY's Upper Hudson Valley and wgxc.org/listen everywhere
Hosted by DJK from KPSQ-LP in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
Host DJK drives listeners through the world of African-influenced music – from night clubs in Dakar to festivals in Bahia, from recording studios in Havana to family compounds on the streets of Lagos. The show follows the African diaspora to South America, the Caribbean and southern Europe, but never strays far from the beat of the mother continent. From KPSQ-LP, Fayetteville, AR. This week on the "Afrosonic Taxi," we'll look for the connections between musicians in North Africa and the Middle East. From Israel to Ethiopia, this region has experienced cultural exchanges for centuries.
