Selectors: prashant & mrjofa
Todays show is dedicated to Nelson Mandela "Madiba", who passed away last week. Music about the ideas and values he fought for, and the prejudices and oppression he fought against. The show brings together music from the civil rights struggle in the US, in the UK, as well as South Africa.We bring you music from the time of apartheid, as well as music from Africa today.
A special show, which we hope inspires you to research different artists and genres, and discover for yourself the role music has played, and continues to play, in struggles everywhere.
"..Any man or institution that tries to rob me of my dignity will lose..." Madiba
