FRIDAY MUSIC: Ex Africam # 2, by JD

The Proms on BBC4 at the weekend featured Angélique Kidjo and I found this review from the Evening Standard:

The review gives special mention to the percussionist but I thought the drummer was even better and special guest Roberto Fonseca was excellent, as usual.

Watching the show I was reminded that we need a further helping of music 'out of Africa'.
Part one was here -

....and we continue, belatedly, with more of the same and it is easy to see how the Blues and the S.American rhythms were derived from Africa's musical traditions.
