As we near the end of Black History Month let's take it back to the source geographically. Can you think of artists who were born in Africa? Share a favorite and we'll spin a set of requests after 9am.

Here's what we played:
 
Cesaria Evora "Sodade"
 
Youssou N'Dour (with Neneh Cherry) "7 Seconds"
 
J.S. Ondara "Saying Goodbye"
 
Sade "Your Love Is King"
