Follow the Drum – Fuji, Mbalax, Samba, Rumba

We tune up our ears to some of the Africa’s great drumming voices–fuji and juju in Nigeria, sabar in Senegal–and to the travels of the drum to the Americas–samba in Brazil, rumba in Cuba, salsa in Puerto Rico and more. This show takes us into the polyrhythmic, multiple voices of live performances and into the homes of some of the world’s greatest percussionists. [originally aired in 2006]
