As the Nkengas put it: "Welcome to this African Culture Panorama!". Sorry for the delay folks! It took a while to get this episode online, mostly due to an acute herb-fueled manifestation of sloth. Even the word itself sounds lazy...
Anyway, I tried to make it worthwhile, now it's up to you to hear if it is!

Starting off with some good news from Zimbabwe - the legendary Green Arrows at work in a stunning 'waka waka' tune. A welcome change to the tragic vaudeville surrounding Mugabe & his acolytes. Is it a sign of the times that this "good news" is more than 3 decades old?
Next up is some uptempo highlife straight out of Naija. Wicked afrobeat, super fuzzy zambian sounds & some seriously funky stuff make up the rest of this episode.

Roll up, spark up, press play and... DANCE!
