Global A Go-GoGlobal A Go-Go: Friday June 17, 5-7 PM

I play music from all over the world on Global A Go-Go, but if you forced me to concentrate on only one region, I think it would have to be West Africa — over the last 50 years straight through until today, there have been just so many great recordings from that part of the world.  We've received several excellent new West African reissues recently; they'll form the core of an all-West African program this week.

There'll be plenty of variety in the mix: Cuban influences, sounds of the Malian Empire, voodoo rhythms, highlife, makossa and more.  And we'll end with a set of African disco, which I think you're going to like if you just give it a chance.
