Global Beat, KFAI 07/22/09


I loved the focus of doing an all Reggae show last week on Global Beat, but it was nice today to get back to the original mission of the show (and the station): radio without boundaries. To that end we heard music from Mali, Chile, Spain, Cuba, Brazil, Haiti, Cape Verde, New York City and points beyond, from such artists as Milton Nascimento, Horace Andy, Oumou Sangare, The Afro Cuban All Stars and many others. There is a two week window of opportunity to hear the show via MP3 stream at the KFAI site, I’ve also posted playlists here and there.
