Welcome back to another end-of-the-week special on Greedio as we revisit the latest 'African Presence' broadcast by Weltbeat host/selector Jean Trouillet and his studio guests Hauke Dorsch (African Music Archive) and Bulgarian-German writer Ilija Trojanow. Trojanow, who grew up in Kenya, has developed a deep love for African music and literature and, in this show, shares some of his impressive life story, while talking about his travels, encounters with musicians and how he founded the infamous Marino Verlag (publishing house), a hub for contemporary African authors.
