Africa Is A Country Radio with Chief Boima: Jivin' in Joburg

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 Chief Boima, 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 “Clubbing across the Continent” inspired by the Goethe-Institut's Ten Cities project. In episode three we visit Johannesburg with Sean O’Toole, South African journalist who grew up going to clubs in Johannesburg in the 70s and 80s. We listen to songs from across various eras of Johannesburg’s history and discuss the contours of division across space and time
