About the Show


The funky, sinuous rhythms of Afrobeat. The pulse of Algerian rai. Township jive from Johannesburg. The desert trance of Tuareg blues. Catchy soukous beats from the Congo. These are just a few examples from the cornucopia of modern popular music in Africa, one of the world’s most fertile musical hotspots today. And don’t forget Haitian compas, Brazilian tropicalia, Cuban rumba, and good old-fashioned R&B – music around the world with its roots in the African homelands.

Here on The Warm Heart of Africa, we aim to to educate, entertain, and spread awareness of African and diaspora culture, politics, and tradition through music, history and timeless grooves. Join DJ Vinyl Scratch from 7 to 9 PM every Wednesday on WHOA as we take a journey across the continent and across the globe, feasting our ears on the voices, the sounds, and the stories of worldwide superstars and obscure musicians alike.
