African Guitar Summit

Transport yourself through music to African destinations like Madagascar, Guinea and Ghana. This star-studded cast of musicians have stories and songs that are just as varied as their backgrounds, but their harmonies and grooves are tight. Learn more about how they came together and their unique sound.

Lori’s love for public broadcasting runs deep. She was raised on Car Talk, Morning Edition, Adventures in Good Music with Karl Haas, and later while studying wildlife biology at Bethel College in North Newton, Kansas, she realized that if she helped answer phones during the fund drive at KMUW, she could meet and chat with the hosts of locally produced shows.
