Songs of African Cities
Sure, there are lots of songs about food and love and nature, but I’ve been collecting songs about the places where most people live: the cities. The first installment of this series of shows highlights songs about cities in Africa, from the bustling capitols to small but mighty places. From Cape Town to Cairo, the sounds of African cities.
