The name Harmattan is derived from a dry and dusty wind, which blows from the Sahara Desert over West Africa, it occurs between November and March. It is said when the wind changes its direction, the dust can travel across the Mediterranean as far as northern Europe and the UK.
Much like the Harmattan Analogy I would love the radio to storm its way as a platform that enables a bridge between the radio station and the listener. Harmattan show is committed to broadcasting the unifying diverse sounds and people that make up subcultures ranging from the African diaspora music to New Age Electronica.
It encourages conversations, providing discovery, and supporting the creatives that occupy its infrastructure. As the world increasingly becomes more digitally connected, political and social tensions are rife, Harmattan’s acts as a creative component breaking down cultural and political barriers through music.
