Africa Is a Country Radio, the audio accompaniment to the website of the same name, is a monthly deep dive into the music and cultural politics of the African continent and beyond. Hosted by Sierra Leonean-American music producer, DJ, writer, and cultural activist Chief Boima, who is also the managing editor of Africa Is a Country, co-founder of Kondi Band and the founder of the INTL BLK record label. The show features a mix of music and interviews with musicians, historians, journalists, and more.
The theme for this season’s Africa Is a Country Radio is port cities. In previous episodes Boima explored the idea of the Black Atlantic and the Black Indian Ocean, and now they visit a city with a unique history that sits at a nexus between those two worlds, Cape Town, South Africa.
