It's imaginary world music on this edition of New Sounds. The Spanish group Radio Tarifa blends traditional North African music, flamenco, and a dash of Cuban rhythms with pop. Hear the rich and sensual results on their CD Rumba Argelina. Similarly, 3 Mustaphas 3 has roots in Eastern Europe, but the band takes on a lively assortment of global styles, using various indigenous instruments and multilingual vocals to boot. Plus, hear from Penguin Café Orchestra, Zap Mama, Bobby McFerrin, and more.
