Global A Go-Go presents:

Pharoah Sanders, the American saxophonist who passed away on September 24 at age 81, was perhaps the most spiritual, ecstatic musician that jazz has ever produced. Not surprisingly, musical traditions from around the world were essential elements of his body of work. On this week’s edition of Global A Go-Go, we pay tribute to Pharoah by playing three of his recordings that reflect his interest in global music: Indian, Moroccan and West African.

Also this week (Sunday October 2, 1:00-3:00 PM on WRIR, for two weeks afterwards on the wrir.org archive player, check your local listings for airing on other radio stations, and any old time at my podcast site): a tribute to the amazing music of the République de Guinée (aka Guinée Conakry) on the occasion of that nation’s 65th Independence Day featuring Bembeya Jazz National, Kaloum Star and more; and a deep dive into the music of two artists who will be performing at this year’s Richmond Folk Festival: Mauritania’s Noura Mint Seymali and Son Rompe Pera from Mexico.
