America 2020: Kahil El'Zabar // 27-10-20

In the run up to the US Election on November 3rd, Worldwide FM are exploring the theme of 'What it means to be American in 2020'. We have asked several of our favourite artists from across the American musical sphere to tell us how they feel about being American in 2020. Next up we have Chicago jazz boss Kahil El'Zabar, whose new album 'America The Beautiful' is Mari's album of the week this week. He is exploring current issues in America and the globe today regarding race, ecology, economic disparity together with hopes, love and aspirations for a better world yet to come, in the wake of a worldwide pandemic, despotic leadership, mass social discontent, disproportionate poverty, Black Lives Matter and other disenfranchised peoples’ movements and the ecological and economic disparity of our planet - where we are now and where we could go in the future with love, urgency and hope. Vote this November 3rd.
