In addition to being a place where lovers of African music can listen to it every Thursday, Africa Mix has also become an important platform for the African community in the San Francisco Bay Area. This is a program where anyone serving the community can request to come in and speak about the work they are doing.
For the first set of this week's playlist we played African music produced here in the San Francisco Bay Area. This is further testimony that your membership allows us to bring you content that we think deserves your ear -- not what special interests think you should listen to.
Please become part of this grassroots movement to give the local African community a much-needed voice. If you are in North America, call 1-800-525-9917 to become a member. All others can do so online by clicking on this link.
