WNYU: Passport, Radio interview >>

We have a short playlist this week because, as those of you who tuned in know, most of the show was spent in an enlightening interview and powerful live performance from STELLA CHIWESHE! Zimbabwe's mbira queen blessed us with her presence and our regular mix-up of world music became Shona Soundsystem -- strictly mbira music! I hope you all enjoyed it.
