Global A Go-Go presents:

What would have happened if The Cramps played cumbia instead of rockabilly? Something like Rolando Bruno Y El Grupo Arévalo from Buenos Aires, Argentina, I think.

Bruno’s previous band, Los Peyotes, played punk and garage rock, and of course cumbia is extremely popular throughout South America, so for him putting those things together are like combining peanut butter and chocolate. This week on Global A Go-Go, you’ll hear two tracks from Grupo Arévalo’s forthcoming album Cosas Raras, and a few other Latin American bands working with similar ingredients.

Also this week (Sunday June 2, 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): Dizzy Mandjeku plays Franco, two generations of Igbo highlife with Stephen and Okwy Osadebe, funk and rapso from Trinidad & Tobago, Mexitronica by Bostich + Fussible and MIS, and the world’s fastest salsa is made in Colombia.
