Global A Go-Go presents:

For years, you’ve heard me (and my WRIR colleagues DJ Daudi and DJ Graybeard) go on and on about champeta music: how it’s the sound of Colombia’s Caribbean coast, how it’s built from the records that sailors brought from African to Colombia’s seaports, how it’s some of the world’s most awesome dance music.

Now you get to see and hear champeta for yourself — for free, to boot.  Tribu Baharu (pictured above) will be rocking the 14th annual Richmond Folk Festival this year, performing on Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday evening on downtown Richmond’s historic riverfront.  And you’ll hear them recorded live in WRIR’s Studio C on Daudi and Graybeard’s The Motherland Influence radio show, Sunday October 21 during WRIR’s Fall ’18 Fund Drive.

This week, I’ll give you a taste of Tribu Baharu to get you motivated to see them at the Folk Festival, and I’ll feature three other artists that I’ll certainly be catching at this year’s festival: Sona Jobarteh from The Gambia, the world’s foremost female kora player; the Puerto Rican salsa band Orquesta El Macabeo, who played live on Global A Go-Go three years ago; and the kings of Jamaican nyabinghi drumming, Ras Michael & The Sons Of Negus.

It’s become a kind of tradition for me to post my Richmond Folk Festival schedule — a list of the sets I’m planning to see at this year’s festival, weather permitting and last-minute changes-of-mind allowed.  So here it is:
