Thanks to everyone who tuned in for this week’s broadcast of Emi’s Good Listening on North Highland Radio. This week’s theme was Afro Pop/Beat. Some of the bands and musicians hail from and still live in Africa, but some are living in Europe or the U.S. and have drawn on their African heritage for inspiration or for amazing collaborations. It was tough to pick just these tunes, so we’ll revisit this theme again, I’m sure. Check out the links below for the videos (where available) and get in touch if you fancy hearing anything in particular or you’d like me to explore a special theme. Here’s the podcast:
