Now Spinning at Afropop HQ

Robson Banda & The Black Eagles "Soweto"
Despite the name, this group hails from Zimbabwe. A recent reissue gives the slick, mbira-influenced guitar work it's full, swirling chorus glory. Definitely worth checking out.

Wally Seck, son of the immortal Thione Seck, is one of the hottest tickets in Senegalese mbalax today. His show at the Manhattan Center in the Hammerstein Ballroom promises to deliver an extravaganza reminiscent of Youssou N'Dour's Grand Bals. A must for mbalax aficionados!
