Verity Sharp talks about apala, jazz, Malian pop and Romantic music with Teju Cole, the compiler of tonight’s exclusive music mix.
An acclaimed photographer, art historian, critic and author of four books, Teju Cole also happens to be a music-obsessive and a longstanding Late Junction super-fan. Tonight he fulfils a bit of a personal radio fantasy by appearing on the programme.
After a childhood spanning the USA and Nigeria, Teju Cole currently lives in Brooklyn, and is Professor of the Practice of Creative Writing at Harvard.
