Customer Reviews

AfroPop WorldWide is Excellent

AfroPop worldwide is a real gem of a radio program. They do a great job of exploring African music throughout the Diaspora. Their shows are well researched, timely, and the music is always interesting. Often the recordings of music (both from the field and studio) are interspersed with interviews with academics as well as musicians themselves. I would like to hear a few shows that tie in African musical elements from different parts of the world, instead of staying specifically in one place. Also, the longer the podcasts the better!

A gem of a podcast

I originally subscribed to this podcast because I was looking for a show dedicated to Afrobeat. I quickly discovered to my delight that Afropop Worldwide reaches and explores many genres of music with thoughtful commentary.

why not a full program ?

i used to listen to the full hour long programs of afropop ww on npr... now i live in an area where it is on at some late night hour- if it's on at all, and i miss it... so i thought 'bingo' when i found this podcast- yet it is a disappointment, as it's only small nuggets of music, instead of a full hour program. i guess my point if that i wish they would make the whole hour, every week, in it's entirety, available on itunes.
