About the show

Franco & TPOK Jazz, Franco & OK Jazz, Watam .

Legends of Africa: Franco. In this first episode of United World Radio's new multipart series 'Legends of Africa' we travel to the banks of the River Congo to hear the music of the 'Congo Colossus', Franco. From a childhood spent on the streets of Léopoldville, François Luambo Makiadi grew to be known as the master of Congolese Rumba and as one of Africa's greatest ever guitarists and band leaders.

Broadcast live on NSRlive on Wednesday 20th October 2010

Note: This show wouldn't be possible without the excellent work of Ken Braun and his 'Francophonic' series released on Sterns Music. For this cloudcast the tracks are played in full.
