Mary Ann Kennedy with music from around the world, plus a studio session with Senegalese singer Carlou D. Once a member of Senengal's biggest rap group - Positive Black Soul - he's now gone solo and blends spiritual texts with jazz, soul and hip-hop. Producer Roger Short.

Carlou D left school at the age of 16 to perform on local stages around his neighbourhood. He soon came to the attention of the political rapper, Didier Awadi, and subsequently joined the ranks of Senegal's first, and arguably most successful, hip-hop group, Positive Black Soul. Now a solo artist, Carlou D belongs to the Baay Fall Spiritual sect, blending the essence of their philosophy with musical elements such as Jazz, soul and rap, alongside the direct and outspoken social and political commentary of hip-hop. Purity, simplicity, and respect for others are the cornerstone of Carlou D's concept. His third album comes out this month.
