Global A Go-Go presents:

Sona Jobarteh is the world’s first female virtuoso of the kora, the West African harp-lute which is the characteristic instrument of the Mande musical tradition. She and her band were a highlight of 2018’s Richmond Folk Festival, but her performances in Richmond in no way prepared me for her new album Badinyaa Kumoo, which might be my favorite new record of 2022.
 
I still have a couple of weeks to make up my mind about that — the December 18 edition of Global A Go-Go will feature my top 10 new releases for the last year. But on this week’s show (Sunday December 4, 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) you’ll hear a track from Badinyaa Kumoo for yourself.
 
Also this week: new Brazilian sounds from João Selva and Cabruêra, salsa con sabor cubano, electro-cumbia since last week’s cumbia wasn’t enough, Moonlight Benjamin’s brand new single, and the amazing sounds of Somalia.
