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 check in on African artists who are moving their music forward without losing their roots.
