In this week’s show, the “Jimi Hendrix of the Sahel”, also known to his fans as Vieux Farka Touré, sings his message of peace, in a region on the frontlines of climate change, mass displacement and violent extremism; we also hear the latest stories from the UN News team, covering Afghanistan, COVID-19 and a radical weather forecasting initiative from the World Meteorological Organization. With closing comments too, from regular guest Solange Behoteguy-Cortes.
