Portrait of Stani Goma

Stani Goma

Stani Goma is the presenter and producer of Flight 1067 to Africa on PBS FM every Sunday between 3pm–5pm. The programme features music from all over Africa, and takes the listener on a musical journey around the African continent to discover the rich and diverse sound of Africa.

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 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 Ndour, Angelique Kidjo, Baba Maal and Papa Wemba. He was the MC for the Miriam Makeba concert at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl in 2006.

His other professional activities include clinical pharmacy, research and education.
