Global A Go-Go: Friday January 7, 5-7 PM presents:
It's always an auspicious sign when the first new release of the year is a great one. The first new thing I heard in 2008 was Venus On Earth by Dengue Fever, and it ended up as my album of the year that year. 2011 got started with Laru Beya by Honduran Garifuna singer Aurelio Martinez — it's going to be a strong contender for the year's best as well. You'll hear two tracks from this one on today's program, inside a half-hour set of Garifuna music from across Central America.
Also this week: a little bit of exotica, including a new remake of the extraordinary, inexplicable music of Esquivel; a set of Asian music, from throat singing to psych-rock; and some desert blues-rock, with the emphasis on the rock.
