Bella Bellow died in a car accident in 1973 aged 27. In the early 80s, a cassette of hers (which must have included her entire recorded output) was one of my first encounters with west African music. The talking heads on the program include her older brother, now a brain surgeon in France, Manu Dibango, and Angélique Kidjo.
