Global A Go-Go presents:

They sing feminist songs accompanied by microKorg synthesizer, their vodoun funk rhythms are played on recycled percussion including a bass instrument made out of PVC pipes whacked with a sandal, and they’re named after the Togolese women who dominated West Africa’s textile trade. They are NBT: Nana Benz du Togo and they must be heard and seen to be believed. We’ll take care of the latter this week on Global A Go-Go.

Also this week (Sunday August 27, 1:00-3:00 PM on WRIR, for two weeks afterwards at wrir.org/listen, check your local listings for airing on other radio stations, and any old time at my podcast site): Amazigh banjo music from Morocco, Prince Fatty covers Richmond’s own Lonnie Liston Smith, happy 32nd birthday to the Republic of Moldova, new Afrobeat by Eparapo, and more bikutsi guitars from Cameroon.
