Africa Mix is a weekly  program of music from Africa and the African diaspora on KALW 91.7 FM.San Francisco. Emmanuel Nado and Edwin Okongo alternate each week to offer listeners something different in the way of international music, cultural information, and musicians interviews. Nado and Okongo offer two complementary perspectives to listeners.  “We play what  we believe our listeners will enjoy." Weeks after weeks Africamix gets calls from listeners who stumbled across the show to say how the music has enhanced their night. Some  say they dance around their kitchens, or that it makes their studying more interesting. Africamix also has a solid following from the city’s multicultural communities, many of whom say the music reminds them of home. We present Africa Mix for the pure joy and cool meditation of it all, to invite listeners to open their ears to different kind of rhythms.
