Afropop Worldwide

For more than thirty years, the Peabody award-winning radio show and digital magazine Afropop Worldwide has educated and entertained audiences with content "dedicated to music from Africa and the African diaspora." Its internationally syndicated, weekly radio show (available on well over 100 stations worldwide) is hosted by Georges Collinet, a seasoned broadcaster with more than 50 years of experience who grew up in Cameroon. In addition to its radio broadcasts, Afropop is also available as a podcast via iTunes, Soundcloud, and Stitcher. Visitors to the Afropop website can explore their numerous audio episodes by artist name, country, and musical genre, with episodes available from the present to as far back as 2003. The site is also frequently updated with articles covering a range of topics, such as reviews of albums and performances, interviews with musicians, photo essays, and more. Afropop Worldwide is produced by the New York-based nonprofit World Music Productions, and it has received funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts. For readers with any level of interest in African music and culture, this resource is well worth a visit.
