Ngoma, a musical journey across Africa continues. In this week’s edition, we set off in South Africa where we listen to Shaluza Max’s hot number Mangase, groovy.

We then make a stopover in Nairobi, Kenya with a fine combination of two songbirds– Suzanne Owiyo (Kenya) and Mbilia Bel (DR Congo). The duo performs Lo, which was produced by Ketebul.

Many have listened to Oliver Mtukudzi famous number Todii but the video has not been popularised. In Ngoma, you now get a chance to listen and view Todii, from one of Zimbabwe’s finest musician and social commentator.

From Zimbabwe, we fly to Bamako, Mali. Mali is the land of many great African musicians. The late Ali Farka Toure, the king of the blues, Salif Keita amongst others. In this week’s edition, we listen to Rokia Traore with a memorable number Tuit Tuit.

The journey ends in the sandy beaches of Cape Verde. It has also produced famous musicians like the late Cesaria Evora. One of her protégée is Gabriela Mendes who sends us home with Tradicao.

Enjoy Ngoma, a musical journey across Africa.
