Ready to do the kwassa kwassa? This week on Global A Go-Go, a vintage Congolese recording from the 1980s: a soukous-style medley of American soul hits. Need some pointers? Click "Read More," then watch the video and learn the steps from the inventors of kwassa kwassa, Pepe Kalle's Empire Bakuba dancers featuring Emoro the dancing dwarf. You're welcome.
Also this week: Algeria via Brazil starting right here in Richmond; brass bands of all colors, shapes and sizes; and for Black History Month, the birth of conscious hip hop.
Playlist temporarily unavailable.
