The Relaxed Case of the Night at Club Safari

12:00pm, 3-10-2019
<< Tropicology

This is the morning after XRAY FM's fabulous fifth birthday party event. If you are like me, music lovers, you may require some relaxing sounds as you try to piece together memories that might yield clues to the current whereabouts of your coat and your credit cards.

Encyclopedia Sound to the rescue! Today we are back at Club Safari for another round of lost nuggets from the pop music scenes of West and Central Africa. My focus today shifts between Afro-Latin and Highlife, featuring music from The Congo, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria, Benin, Madagascar, and Senegal.

We start the show today with some of that old timey charm, then we continue the charm offensive with a sampling of club-friendly torch numbers straight from the Safari Club Lounge. We will hear some traditional latin covers before we send the set out on a dreamcloud of highlife bliss.

Wait, it's daylight savings time today?? Where was the last place you remember seeing your keys?? 

Happy recovery day!
