Dance music from West Africa, from Southen Africa, from India and beyond awaits you on this New Sounds.  Hear something new from Femi Kuti (son of Fela), and something from banjo player Bela Fleck's "Throw Down Your Heart," recorded on the island of Madagascar.  Quite possibly there might also be Balkan brass band music from Goran Bregovic, and a bit of Angolan music by way of Brazil.
