Zeinab Badawi hosts an evening celebrating the spoken word in all its guises across Africa.
In a continent where radio still has enormous power, Zeinab and guests explore the oral traditions of diverse populations, from village story tellers to urban talkshow hosts, from endangered languages to the spread of the mobile phone.
Radio Africa takes over the airwaves with live performance, interviews, discussions and reports from the changing sound of Africa's word of mouth.
