Global A Go-Go presents:

How is it possible that one of the best cumbia bands in the world is based in Lyon, France? Well, that’s where Hernán Cortés landed after touring the world with Monterrey, Mexico’s el rebelde del acordeón Celso Piña and his band Su Ronda Bogotá.

Cortés’ ensemble Kumbia Boruka is a well-oiled 8-person party machine with over 400 gigs under their belt. As their booking agent says, Kumbia Boruka is “to be enjoyed without moderation!” The band’s latest album Santa Suerte is their best calling card to date — I’ll feature it this week on Global A Go-Go.

Also this week (Sunday June 9, 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): Richmond reggae by Mighty Joshua with guest James “Plunky” Branch, Kiki Valera’s son cubano, Malian standard-bearers Bassekou Kouyaté & Amy Sacko, Franck Biyong brings the pan-African dance party, and les groupes d’animation feminins du Gabon.
