World of Echoes: Francois K

First broadcast date: 15 May 2018

World of Echoes is a monthly four hour show from house legend François K.

Taking a soulful and eclectic approach, François blends together an array of musical genres and adding his own commentary.

In this month’s instalment of World of Echoes, François celebrates the unmatched and vibrant spiritual energy of African music. The show features a number of his favourite tunes by African artists across the timeline of recent history, as well as many directly influenced by its indomitable radiance. These help to illustrate how its powerful rhythms and timeless melodies continue to permeate popular culture and help shape the way we hear things today. The show also features a short interview segment with original Last Poets member Abiodun Oyewole about one of his recent trips to Senegal.
