Bintou Simporé, renowned host of Néo Géo on Paris France’s Radio Nova, is interviewing Akwaaba founder Benjamin Lebrave on her show. Bintou spearheads Nova’s Sono Mondiale, and has long been the purveyor of fine yet underrated sounds from across the globe.
With Benjamin, she will focus not only on Peul and Manding sounds from Senegal and Mali, which are somewhat recognized in France, but also on highlife and hiplife from Ghana, which are gaining momentum in other European nations, but remain underrepresented in France. Enjoy!
Update: you can listen to the show as part of the Néo Géo podcast on Radio Nova’s website.
