TOBIAS STURNER from Yaabafunk is our guest this week. He has developed a brilliant project with musicians from the Diola people of Senegal - a very different sound from usually associated with Senegal from sparse acoustics to polyphonic choirs and has produced a fine CD in association with Empowerment Works www.empowermentworks.org
The musicians will directly benefit from sales and profits will be put into a training centre and a studio in Ziguinchor capital of Diola region - Casamance (the only other ones are in Dakaar)

Tobias will be playing the very different music from the cd and telling us more (in between the Yaabafunk soundcheck and performance at Favela Chic that evening)
