Afropop Worldwide Returns To Airwaves In New York
Published March 27, 2008

The last time New Yorkers heard Afropop Worldwide (APWW) was almost ten years ago, but now, it’s back on the air on Radio New York at 11 p.m. Saturday nights. With its goal to increase the profile of African and African Diaspora music worldwide and to see credit given to those artists, industry professionals and countries that produce the music, Afropop Worldwide is glad to broadcast once again in New York City. This Saturday the show will air the program “Africa in America: 2008,” a survey of 17 US-based African music acts including Timbila and Burkina Electric. The two bands will also perform on April 19 at The Shrine in Harlem between 133 and 134 Streets.

“Afropop” describes popular African music, a sound that became extremely popular in 1988 when National Public Radio decided to launch Afropop Worldwide (APWW) as a weekly series. Now, APWW, hosted by Georges Collinet and produced by Sean Barlow of World Music Productions, is distributed by Public Radio International to over 100 stations in the U.S. and is also heard in Europe and Africa.
