Something different this week on Global A Go-Go: the mambo kings of hep harmony. I'm talking about the intersection of two major 1950s musical trends, doo-wop and the craze for Latin rhythms like mambo and cha-cha-cha, from vocal groups like Cuba's Los Zafiros (pictured above) and the USA's The Sultans.
Along with the hep harmony, you'll hear Richmond's Hotel X on the occasion of their 20th anniversary, another taste of cumbia, a couple of Peruvian jam sessions, and the sound of Philadelphia meets the sound of Rio.
