Global A Go-Go presents:

The African influence on music from the Americas is vast. On this week’s program, you’ll hear seven different styles of music from Latin America, each of which is just one degree removed from Africa. Included will be a new release by Betsayda Machado & La Parranda El Clavo from Venezuela (pictured above), who’ll be performing at this year’s Richmond Folk Festival.

Also this week: female singers from the Red Sea region; low-tech electronica, made in Africa; and Afro-funk, DC style.
