Afropop is the contemporary, mostly urban, music of Africa. It also gives public radio’s Peabody Award-winning program Afropop Worldwide its name.

As the program celebrates 30 years on the air in 2018, Senior Producers Banning Eyre and Sean Barlow pay a visit to the Albuquerque Museum to present a vivid, multi-media tour through this remarkable musical history. We’ll visit key African cities—Kinshasa, Dakar, Bamako, Soweto and Harare—where dynamic new genres of music were forged in the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s, as rural people brought their traditions and fused them with modern international trends in fast-growing urban centers. Then we’ll sample the music of the today’s youth, whose foreign models are not the rock, jazz, soul and salsa of their forefathers, but rather dancehall reggae, r&b and hip-hop. Through all these transformations, the music illuminates deep truths about history, politics, spirituality and social evolution on our African planet.

This program is in conjunction with the exhibition «Making Africa: A Continent of Contemporary Design.»

Price: $1 — $4 General Admission. Talk included with museum admission.
