Global A Go-Go: Friday August 6, 5-7 PM presents:
The Budos Band (pictured above) is without a doubt Staten Island's number one instrumental Afro-soul collective. Not much of an endorsement? How about this: they're one of the hottest, funkiest bands in the world today.
Their third album is in stores next week; you'll hear a track from it on today's edition of Global A Go-Go, plus one each from their first two discs. After that, you'll be prepared to write your own Budos Band hype.
Also on this week's program: soul music from the subcontinent, the funky 1970's in Ghana (including a preview of the new Analog Africa compilation, Afro-Beat Airways), and new desert blues by Tamikrest and Khaira Arby.
