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.
