Thursday night on TSF Jazz I wanted to talk about Harry Belafonte. His songs and his activism followed me my whole life. You may know the Banana Boat Song (Day-O) but on this show we will listen to the other side of his music.


Cette semaine sur TSF Jazz, je voulais vous parler d'Harry Belafonte. Ses chansons et son activisme m'ont suivi durant toute ma vie. Vous connaissez sûrement The Banana Boat Song (Day-O), mais dans cette émission on va écouter tout le reste de son oeuvre.
