Global Pop

« previous episode | next episode »

Sunday, February 01, 2009

Listen to the Caribbean-infused music - with a bit of French and West African roots for good measure - by Andy Palacio and the Garifuna Collective on this edition of New Sounds. From "Watina," hear personal songs, short, with simple lyrics, with rhythms extracted from ritual music, like that of a traditional healing ceremony, or from a kind of wake, but each with the intent of keeping the Garifuna culture alive and relevant. Plus, hear the latest from Vieux Farka Touré, the son of Ali, featuring guest appearances by kora player and guiding hand Toumani Diabaté. Also, global pop by Celso Fonseca, and more.
