In the first half, Vox Sambou joins us by phone in advance of his show July 14th at Théâtre Fairmount. Opening for him will be the talented Mexican-American rapper / poet / teacher / activist Bocafloja, who dials in from NYC to talk about his latest compilation Antología 012-014, his Decolonial Studies program, the Quilomboarte Collective, and diverse musings around music, race, oppression, anti-colonialism and the diasporic experience.
In the second half, we feature an in-depth interview with Cap Verdean sensation Mayra Andrade, in town July 10th at the PHI centre closing out her tour, followed by a preview of indoor and outdoor programming of the Nuits d'Afrique festival.
