I'm always reminded of how much I love radio when I visit home (Kenya). I've just returned to the UK from what ended up being a 5 week trip and as I acclimatise, I find news of some upcoming radio goodies.
Tune in to BBC Radio 4 this Tuesday at 11:30 am for Modern Day Griots. The documentary explores the West African griot tradition and how it has inspired a new generation of British artists.
Written and presented by Gaylene Gould of Write Talk Listen (pictured), the show will feature a great line-up of musicians and performers including Fatoumata Diawara, Zena Edwards, Inua Ellams, HKB Finn, Tunde Jegede, Sona Jobarteh and Seckou Keita.
The show will also air on Saturday June 9th at 3:30pm.
