Show Notes: Was expecting to do a live phone interview with Oliver "Tuku" Mtukudzi during this show, but the call never came. Still, we heard lots of great music from many Zimbabwean artists (and a few from elsewhere in Africa, including Bembaya Jazz, who played Seattle earlier this week, and Tuku and Tounkara, who have shows in the next couple weeks). Oh, and Dara and Babacar quietly sat in on the show with me.

# Our cover song of the week was Bonnie Raitt's cover of the Mtukudzi song "Hear Me Lord," the original version of which also appears on several Tuku CDs, including the new one from Putumayo: The Oliver Mtukudzi Collection: The Tuku Years.
