South African a cappella; three songs from my favorite album of 2024 so far, Hiddo Dhawr by Sahra Halgan; Gabonese singing in praise of maximum leader Omar Bongo; the twangy soul-cumbia of LA LOM; Oluko Imo's Trini Afrobeat; new dancehall South Sudanese style from Dynamq

Note: The recording of this show had a tech glitch so I've reconstructed the failed section, with the exception of a mic break between Mau Gatiyo and Amral's Trinidad Cavaliers, which apparently is gone for good
