Straight No Chaser: Paul Bradshaw with Mike Calandra Achode, Nan Kolè & Christian Adofo05.07.19
This coming Friday, Straight No Chaser’s Paul Bradshaw is in the WWFM studio with Crudo Volta founder and Art Director Mike Calandra Achode, Gqom Oh! DJ and label owner Nan Kolè and writer Christian Adofo.
Following their first two documentaries Woza and Yenkyi – which focused respectively on Gqom in Durban and Afrobass in Accra – the visual collective Crudo Volta have just returned to the UK to promote a new series called Taxi Waves. In the mix are three excellent, beautifully constructed and culturally illuminating documentary films that focus on modern, urban African music in three very different African cities: Lagos (Nigeria), Maputo (Mozambique) and Addis Ababa (Ethiopia).
