The upcoming birthdays of Hugh Masekela (4/4) and Ravi Shankar (4/7) prompted a train of thought that stopped at the station of “let’s do a radio show featuring musicians who are/were still making music as elders.” Along with those two, let’s hear from Asha Bhosle, Wendo Kolosoy, Abdullah Ibrahim, Celia Cruz, Ernest Ranglin, Dorothy Masuka, […]
