: Africa Music Night

Over four hours of music from Africa, introduced by Lucy Duran and Eugene Skeef. Music is a powerful link with Africa's heritage, and a new audience across the world is becoming aware of its infectious appeal. The evening includes specially recorded highlights from one of Africa's biggest music festivals, "Awesome Africa", which took place last month in the Shongweni Resources Reserve in South Africa and featured performances by Ismael Lo from Senegal and South Africa's own Busi Mhlongo.
Some of Africa's best musicians reflect on songs which carry a special message, including Youssou N'Dour, Cheikh Lo , Afel Bocoum and Oliver Mtukudzi. Plus music performed live in the studio by Moroccan lute player Hassan Erraji and Ethiopian lyre player Alula Andetu.
10.00 Verity Sharp introduces music from across Africa, live from London's Jazz Cafe. Senegalese kora player Seckou Keita performs with Justin Vali , who plays the valiha, a bamboo zither from the central plains of Madagascar. Plus Kekele, a supergroup of master musicians from Central Africa who are recreating the classic sound of Congolese rumba.

Africa Music Night: A celebration of the music of Africa, including live performances by some of the continent's leading artists.

7.30pm R3
Radio 3 has done much to give African music a British following, notably via the wonderfully eclectic Late junction and Andy Kershaw's shows. Tonight the network devotes the entire evening to African music and the issues that often inspire the music. There is live music in the studio from artists who include Youssou N'Dour and Oliver Mtukudzi and they also take part in the discussion, which ranges over Aids, politics, myth and history. At 10pm, Verity Sharp presents a live concert from the Jazz Cafe in London, which features the Sengalese kora player Seckou Keita and Justin Vali. There is also a first UK appearance by the remarkable Congolese rumba band Kekele. The evening's presenters are Lucy Duran and Eugene Skeef. Read more on page 27.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
