Part seven of a continuing series dives deep into the realm of rock fusion from north, south, east, west, and central Africa, from the 1960s to the present. Replete with searing guitars, driving rhythms, punching basslines, swirling keyboards, hard-hitting horns – and, as always, plenty of surprises. Rebroadcast from Nov. 20, 2022.
