It's the most wonderful time of the month! For this program, John Schaefer presents the pick of the piles. There's music from Madagascar, Ethiopia, Poland, and India, to name a few. Listen to Malagasy blues from Lala Njava, somkething from Mulatu Astatke's latest featuring Fatoumata Diawara, and Polish folk music singers accompanying themselves with kitchen instruments. There's also a brand-new selection from the forthcoming "Red Hot & Fela" compilation as done by members of TV on the Radio, Kronos Quartet, and Stuart Bogie, the musical director of the broadway show, "Fela!" And more.
