Artscape – Wawali Bonane

This Artscapes radio piece was produced at Jack Straw in 2000 as part of a series highlighting the work of Jack Straw’s resident artists. The project Safarini: In Transit featured African immigrant artists living in Seattle. In addition to Wawali Bonane, a soukous musician born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Safarini included Obo Addy, Kofi Anang, Lora Chiorah-Dye, and Frank Ulwenya. The Safarini compact disc was released by Smithsonian Folkways Recordings in 2000.
