¡North Africa!

You are in for a mind-blowing session of music from Algeria, Morocco, Niger, Sudan, and Western Sahara.  Special thanks to DJ City Slang for collecting and curating today’s show.  All of this music is new to me except Amanar, and it is all absolutely amazing.  From DJ City Slang’s own collection on both (vinyl) record and CD we’re bringing it to you live and worldwide, streaming at weft.org and at WEFT 90.1FM (2-4PM Central).
