Hosted by Dennis Darrah.
We present music from one of the great bands out of Senegal, West Africa: Orchestra Baobab. Originally formed in 1970 they disbanded in 1987 and then after their recordings achieved global significance reformed in 2001. This show presents a sample of their music from 1982 to 2008. Music from around the world is featured. Bringing the audience into the realm of other cultures through music, hopefully expanding empathy for the “other,” and recognizing that “other” in ourselves.
