I'm back and I'm bearing plenty of new music — that's the focus of this week's program. Journalist/musician Banning Eyre's new biography of Thomas Mapfumo (pictured above in colorful shoes) is about to be published by Duke University Press; Eyre has curated a best-of CD to complement his book, so you'll hear the words and music of the Lion of Zimbabwe.
Also new to Global A Go-Go this week: smoking Malian sounds from Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni Ba and Khaira Arby, a beautiful new collaboration between French guitarist Titi Robin and Moroccan sintir player Mehdi Nassouli, and the reissue of a 1970's Turkish folk-rock nugget by Mazhar Ve Fuat. And plenty of great older music to go along with it.
