Gal-Dem with KOKOROKO and Boko! Boko!

First broadcast date: 16 January 2017

We’re joined by our friends at gal-dem, the award winning digital and print publication ran by women of colour, made for everyone. Antonia and Varaidzo lead a discussion on the term “world music,” how far it reaches and how they feel about it, as well as music of the African diaspora.

Antonia and Varaidzo are in conversation with young Afrobeat collective KOKOROKO members Sheila Maurice-Grey (trumpet), Richie Seivwright (trombone) and Onome Edgeworth (percussion.)

Afropop collective Boko! Boko! member Tash drop by for a mix and a chat.

For some musical education and to read more about gal-dem’s work, you can check out their article on World music, written by Arnaz Marker.
