From NPR’s All Songs Considered

New Music: TV On The Radio, Rokia Traore, Lucius, More

On this week’s episode of All Songs Considered, co-host Bob Boilen basks in the glory of his return by making fellow co-host Robin Hilton enjoy the musings of a box that when opened plays affirming statements with Bob’s name that was gifted to him by a secret admirer. The theme of good vibes continues when artists that were featured on some of the earliest episodes of All Songs Considered, such as TV On The Radio and Rokia Traore, return with new music.

Artist: Rokia Traoré
Album: Beautiful Africa

Another artist featured on an early episode of All Songs Considered. “Kouma” is the work of the amazingly talented Rokia Traore. An extremely accomplished guitar player as well as singer, Rokia released her new album Beautiful Africa [releases in the US on September 24th].
