Global Notes: The music of the Central African Republic

Idylle Mamba, a musician from the city of Bangui, is Christian. Bangui has seen some of the worst fighting in recent months between Christian vigilante groups and Muslim rebels. Mamba has teamed up with Senegalese musician Youssou Ndour, to record a song for peace. The CAR has a rich tradition of music, although its music industry is one of the least developed in the region. We'll explore the music of the Central African Republic with Radio M and Morning Shift host Tony Sarabia. (Photo: Flickr/Hexagone Scène Nationale Arts Sciences - Meylan)
