In the May edition of Africa Is Hot, Amal is in full charge of the decks conquering time & space with a selection of off-center grooves from all over the map. In the second hour, Juma4 (aka dj Gioumanne) joins all the way from Nairobi – which is actually flooding as it’s the rainy season – with a mix of unheard seventies and eighties Kenyan grooves, from rock to gospel and Kikuyu funk to Hindi disco.
Listen below and make sure to check back in June for a new edition, live via our page on Red Light Radio or on-demand via Africanhiphop.com.
