The state of the Afropean union
We're back with INTL BLK radio after a few months hiatus. In this episode, Chief Boima opens with a mix of Afrobeats and Zouk, and then reviews some of the musical cross-overs happening across the Black Atlantic. In the 2nd hour we have an interview with Lamin Fofana, electronic music producer and DJ of Sierra Leonean descent based in Berlin. We discuss his latest album Brancusi Sculpting Beyonce, the phenomenon of negrophilia in 1920s European modernist art, and what's behind the current moment of the popularity of African culture in Europe.

Young, Latin & Black
Latin America has not been immune to virality of trap, with the genre being popularized across much of the Caribbean. The Afro Latin island nations, and nearby coastal cities have always been the incubator for Latin American popular music. So when we saw one of Latin Pop's biggest stars, Jennifer Lopez, debut her new "latin trap" song "Dinero" at this year's Billboard Music Awards (alongside DJ Khaled and Cardi B), we thought it would be a good excuse to take our show's focus on international black issues, and start to narrow in on some of the specific cultural nuances of this Black American genre resonating in the US's neighboring nations to the South.
