MC Dola raps live in Swahili, rhymes acappella, plays selections of his music and also some hot tracks by Tanzanian MCs. In conversation with host Charlie Ahearn he delivers an intimate update on African hip hop. Balozi Dola, who grew up in Tanzania, became an East African recording artist with his recent Bongo Flava release. Dola is here to spread the word on hip hop culture as a vehicle for social change in Africa and around the world. We recommend a visit to Nomadic Wax, online home to the fair-trade record label.
