Our 2011 Holiday Special!

Posted by imagineburundi on December 27, 2011

December 27, 2011

It’s the rare special occasion where our local broadcasts and our digital archive intersect because there’s a time gap between them. But this year, we were so excited about our holiday show that we wanted to share it with our listeners in Burundi and abroad at the same time.

The show features our newest reporter, Amina Nshimirimana, who had been on Imagine Burundi as a guest. We were so impressed by her insights and communication style that we asked her to conduct some interviews for us. She came back with some astonishing interviews of Burundians and their experiences with love. So just like last year’s Holiday Special (which you can find as “Episode 5 ‘Gift-Giving'” in our Archive), we have compiled the stories into one episode. This year’s Holiday Special is on the theme of “Love Stories in Burundi.” (Two clips: 25 and 21 minutes)

And just like last year, we have a special Restaurant Review, where we sample different inexpensive ice cream options around town and make our recommendations. Ice cream is relatively new in Burundi but its popularity and access have really jumped in the last year so we wanted to let our listeners know some of the best choices around town. (15 minutes)

So please find below the entire Holiday Special show “Love Stories in Burundi,” our 50th episode of Imagine Burundi. The show has been divided into three clips for easier upload/download. We hope you enjoy it.

Happy rest of 2011!
