Podcast: Out Of Africa #8

This show is dedicated to the Angolan Independence Day, commemorated on the 11th of November of 1975, dedicated as well to its people and marvellous country.

The show kicks off with Bonga and its wonderful voice, music’s extracted from his debut albums, Angola 72 and Angola 74, then we travel through the 60´s and 70´s which are the most relevant years to those generations, days of struggle and cultural affirmation alongside fighting for the independence…

We then come to the 90´s and more recent years with some jazz/funk expressions from Gabriel Tchiema and Wyza and close with a project dedicated to the late Waldemar Bastos, an hip-hop interpretation from his work.

Music is the glue that connects humanity as ONE!
