Balkan brass band music continues to evolve — the latest step along the long road comes from the orchestra led by the father-son team of Boban & Marko Markovic (pictured above). Boban brings deep gypsy soul and jazz improvisation; Marko adds a young virtuoso's chops and a slew of 21st century influences, from New Orleans to electronica to (Tito forbid) turbo-folk.
The new Markovic Orchestra album Gipsy Manifesto will be in stores on October 29 — you'll hear a track from it this week on Global A Go-Go.
Also this week: Fela with strings; new global rock by Andrea Echeverri (Colombia), Boogarins (Brazil) and Rokia Traore (Mali); and salsa is the universal language of groove.
