Episode Info:

Ask most casual Minnesota music fans about the West Bank neighborhood of Minneapolis, and they'll probably tell you about the folk and blues hippie scene of the '60s and '70s. These days, the West Bank is home to a thriving Somali population, and several Somali-Minnesotans are famous throughout the diaspora for their own music and poetry. In this episode, we learn about music and community from our Somali neighbors. [Songs sampled: Aar Maanta & Friends - "Welcome to Cedar-Riverside," Lazerbeak - "Winging It," Aar Maanta - "Deeqa," Aar Maanta - "Tahriib," Faarrow - "I Don't Belong To You," Huhroon - "Happy Birthday Haroon," Deka - "Fond Memory"]
