African Psychedelia

Welcome to another two hour set of psychedelic music on weft.org and WEFT 90.1FM Champaign, IL.  Today’s show is psychedelia from 12 of the 53 countries of Africa: Zambia, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, South Africa, Zimbabwe (Rhodesia), Angola, Benin, Togo, Mali, Ghana, Morocco, and Cameroon.  There’s the super rad collection, but unfortunately I don’t own it and money is tight.  But you should buy it if you can! Congolese Funk, Afrobeat & Psychedelic Rumba 1969-1978 here.
