Global A Go-Go presents:

It was great to meet so many Global A Go-Go listeners at the La Perla show at Get Tight Lounge last Saturday night! And the Colombian takeover of Richmond continues on Monday May 13, once again at Get Tight (Richmond’s Colombian embassy, I guess?), with a performance by another one of Bogotá’s hottest bands, Meridian Brothers.

I’ve seen them before and they’re not to be missed. Meridian Brothers’ forthcoming album Mi Latinoamérica Sufre takes a characteristically off-center approach to champeta, the uniquely Colombian mixture of traditional rhythms with African highlife, soukous and Afrobeat. If you want to get an idea of what they sound like, I’ll play Meridian Brothers’ brand new single this week on Global A Go-Go alongside other Colombian artists past and present working in the champeta groove.

Also this week (Sunday May 12, 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): The new album from Richmond’s own Mighty Joshua; new Afro sounds by Amadou & Mariam, Aboubacar Traoré and Afla Sackey; Eastern European roots music including the latest from Russia’s Otava Yo; Get in the Garage presents current garage rock from Yiddishland, Turkey via Israel, London and Brooklyn; and the latest guitar heroics of Mdou Moctar, who will be playing Richmond’s Friday Cheers on June 7.
