World Music podcast radio show that features music of the African Diaspora.
During his world travels as a bandleader and music educator, Rasheed realized the uniqueness of his own Afro-Caribbean traditions. He imagined a weaving of the diverse African musical styles of the Americas into a distinct new sound. "One Tribe, Many Voices" is the motto of his group, Rain People. Ali's vision is to break through the language barriers in Black Music. He writes and sings in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Yoruba. Rain People’s music is circling the globe as its audience grows on the internet. With each podcast he continues to celebrate the extraordinary musical melting pot of the Americas. Rasheed was signed to Atlantic & Fantasy Records prior to releasing the first "Rain People" CD in Japan in 1995. Rasheed has since released seven Rasheed Ali & Rain People recordings on Digital Rain Factory Records. Through these regular scheduled podcasts, Rasheed Ali is finding a growing audience interested in joining him on his musical journey.
