Global A Go-Go presents:

Abdullah Ibrahim (formerly known as Dollar Brand) is 88 years young on October 9. This week, Global A Go-Go gives him his roses while he’s still among us (and still making fine music: he’s doing a solo concert in Riedering, Germany on his birthday) with three selections from his vast catalogue, including the song that’s been described as what you would get if you combined “A Love Supreme” with “Say It Loud – I’m Black And I’m Proud.”

Also this week (Sunday October 9, 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): we recognize another piano playing birthday boy, Chucho Valdés (a mere 81 years old on Sunday); new Catalunyan folk-rock by the band Julivert; an introduction to Zamrock pioneers Witch, who come to Richmond on October 15; and Afropop classics from Cote D’Ivoire and Cameroon.
