K'Naan In Conversation

Gilles Peterson has Somalian MC and rising star K’Naan in conversation.

Plus all that proper sonic sauce from Scuba, Madlib, James Blake, Nice Nice, Space Invadas, The Simonsound, The Hackney Colliery Band and Bei Bei & Shawn Lee and also Erykah Badu – who will be going back to back with Gilles next week, right here on BBC Radio 1.
