"Afropop Worldwide" is America's first and longest-lived weekly program on the music of Africa and the African Diaspora.
Hosted by Georges Collinet from Cameroon and produced by Sean Barlow for World Music Productions, "Afropop Worldwide" draws on an unprecedented array of reporters, artists and cultural guides to present an hour that is authoritative, comprehensive and hugely entertaining.
Says "Billboard" Editor-inChief Timothy White, "Serving as both keen entertainers and astute explainers in their programming of the absolute best of world music, the people behind 'Afropop Worldwide' do a job that is impossible to overpraise."
Each carefully crafted broadcast features live concert tape, exclusive interviews, visits to musicians' houses, urban ambiance from around the African Diaspora and recordings so rare you won't even find them on Napster!
Over the course of 15 years, the "Afropop Worldwide" staff has accumulated a unique archive of sound recordings, interviews, radio programs, multi-track concert recordings, photographs and out-of-print studio albums. Through its international network of artists, music professionals, fans and supporters, "Afropop Worldwide" receives a never-ending stream of ideas, submissions and inspiration.
"Afropop Worldwide" is the definitive source for the roots and branches of Africa's enormous musical tree.
