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 in the Afrosonic Taxi, we visit artists who are pushing the boundaries of music while holding onto their cultural roots of home. From one of the greatest vocalist of Mali, Oumou Sangare, to a new Latin group led by a Swiss producer, EDKUB.
