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'll dip into the Caribbean. With hundreds of cultures on more than 700 islands as well as the coastal areas surrounding the Caribbean Sea, this area has a rich African heritage.
