A Message from Earth: Africa with DJ Juls and DJ Edu

First broadcast date: 29 December 2017

A Message From Earth is a celebration of the Voyager Golden Record, 40 years after it was sent into deep space for whatever might find it. Dazzled by that audacity, WeTransfer present new ideas from 40 cultural luminaries. As part of the music section, Gilles Peterson has curated interviews and mixes from two artists on each continent, which we present as two hour extended Directors Cuts.
