Listen/download Gilles Peterson's tribute to Nelson Mandela on BBC 6 Music.
Renaissance DJ Gilles Peterson recently paid respects to Nelson Mandela with a special tribute edition of his BBC 6 Music show. Think of Gilles' extended hourlong mix as the anti-SiriusXM– whose full channel devoted to tributes is looking more like a bastion for Sting, Bono, and Alicia Keys. Peterson opens with Xhosa soulstress Simphiwe Dana before easing into a segment from President Obama's now historic JHB Memorial speech.
