Michael Babatunde Olatunji

One November morning in 1960, Studs Terkel’s guest was Michael Babatunde Olatunji of Nigeria. Olatunji brought along some of his drums, as well as some recordings. This lively hour from WFMT’s archives features the rhythms, music and lore of West Africa and the continent itself.
