Super Champeta-Man (known to his family as Lucas Silva, on the right in the image) is the man most responsible for introducing the world beyond Colombia to champeta.  Champeta is the brilliant dance music of Afro-Colombia that re-synthesizes African popular styles (such as Congolese soukous, Nigerian afrobeat and South African mbaqanga) with their Latin American cousins like salsa, cumbia and reggae.  We'll hear selections from five of Lucas Silva's projects, including a track from his new compilation for Soundway Records, Palenque Palenque: Champeta Criolla & Afro Roots In Colombia 1975-91.

Also on this week's program: 8-bit music from around the world; new reggae releases I've been enjoying; and music from the axis of Manu Chao.
