This show was 1st in the global world music chart, 7th in the global latin chart, 7th in the global groove chart, 8th in the global afrobeat chart and 10th in the global world chart.

This week Radio Mukambo announces Felabration Osaka (Japan) and Fela Day in Rio de Janeiro, we listen to a new single by highlife legend Gyedu-Blay Ambolley, announce an Ethio-Belgian party in Ghent, BaBa ZuLa's Benelux tour and an African reggae legend coming to Festival des Libertés.
As I'll be in Japan, the podcast serves a lot of Japanese grooves, including Minyo Crusaders (cd of the week) mixing Japanese folk songs (min'yō) with Latin, African, Caribbean and Asian rhythms ++ a collaboration between Ajate (hayashi music tradition) and the French garage-funk band Ny.Ko.
