Grounded in West African tradition and propelled by the funk and jazz of today, Africa Unplugged blends its own genre of music .

The Greensboro group explores new ways to formulate West African music on their new self-titled album.

Host Frank Stasio talks with Africa Unplugged members: Atiba Rorie on vocals, guitar and djembe; Will Darity on guitar; and Kenny Phelps-McKeown on bass; and they perform live.
