Africa Is A Country Radio: Chief Boima

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 of Africa Is a Country Radio is “Clubbing across the Continent” inspired by the Goethe-Institut's Ten Cities project. In episode three we jump over the Mediterranean to the European capital of Lisbon,Portugal to see how generations of immigrants from Africa have shaped the music and culture of that city. We talk with one of the co-founders of the seminal Afro-Portuguese electronic music group Buraka Som Sistema, DJ Branko, about his time growing up going to clubs in Lisbon, and about what it means to make Portuguese music in a post-colonial multicultural city.
