Stani Goma Presents is a space for Stani to share his new projects, news, and archives.
Stani is the presenter and producer of Flight 1067 to Africa, a radio show on PBS-FM every Sunday between 3:00 and 5:00pm (Australian AEST). The program features music and news from all over Africa, and takes the listener on a musical journey around the continent to discover the rich and diverse sounds within.
Born and bred in the Congo, Stani grew up in Brazzaville literally across the river from Kinshasa, the capital of African dance music. Growing up in such a thriving and prolific musical environment undoubtedly instilled a deep passion and appreciation of African rhythm. Highly regarded as an experienced and knowledgeable presenter, Stani’s involvement in Community radio started in 1990 soon after arriving in Australia.
Over the years Stani has interviewed many African greats such as Hugh Masekela, Youssou N'dour, Angélique Kidjo, Baaba Maal, Papa Wemba and was the MC for the Miriam Makeba concert at Sidney Myer Music Bowl in 2006.
He is also the Founding Director of the Melbourne African Traditional Ensemble-MATE. His other professional activities include clinical pharmacy, research and education.
