The star chronicles a recent visit to Mali...

BLUR frontman DAMON ALBARN is to present a show on BBC Radio Four in December, chronicling a recent trip to AFRICA.

Albarn will present ‘Seven Days In Mali’ on December 23 on the arts & culture channel. The show will detail his time spent in the country during July this year when he travelled with charity Oxfam meeting local musicians trading ideas and skills.

Radio 4 controller Helen Boaden said today (November 29): “He really wanted to do it. It was one of the first decisions I had to make and I thought, yes, let’s give it a try. I’m really pleased he sees Radio 4 as a place to explore ideas about music and the culture of music.”


Boaden also quoted Radiohead as avowed fans of the channel, renowned for its political news and highbrow arts coverage.
