Afropop’s occasional series on African music made in America continues with a focus on three remarkable women. Marie Daulne, founder of the genre-bending vocal group Zap Mama, collaborates with New York Afrobeat band Antibalas, and we hear them live in concert. Madagascar-born Razia introduces her new tri-continental CD, Akory. And Somi tells her story from her days as a Midwestern girl with African ancestry, to her musical career in New York, to her adventurous 18-month stay in Lagos, Nigeria, and her new album, The Lagos Music Salon.  These stories and more in a music-packed hour of Afro-femininity!
