Afropop Worldwide on WUOT-2

Sundays from 4-5 p.m.
Georges Collinet

 Afropop Worldwide is America's first and longest-lived weekly program on the music of Africa and the African Diaspora.

Hosted by Georges Collinet from Cameroon and produced by Sean Barlow for World Music Productions, "Afropop Worldwide" draws on an unprecedented array of reporters, artists and cultural guides to present an hour that is authoritative, comprehensive and hugely entertaining.

December shows:

Dec. 7
Stocking Stuffers 2014 - Afropop’s annual round up of the hot new releases of 2014.  Georges Collinet and Banning Eyre sit down for a music filled survey of African and African diaspora sounds that hit the street this year. Garifuna soul, acoustic and electric roots from Mali and Guinea, Angelique Kidjo, Caetano Veloso, a Mauritanian griot with a voice for the ages, plus new Latin sounds, dancehall, and as many great tunes as these two musical omnivores can cram into an hour of radio. Count on great gift ideas for the holidays!
