Global Beat, KFAI 09/09/09


I was joined in Studio 4  today by Rob Simonds of The Cedar and we had a chance to talk about The Cedar’s 2009 – 2010 season, in particular about the upcoming Global Roots Festival in late September which features a ridiculously diverse and wonderful roster of artists including Os Mutantes  (above, in 1968), BLK JKS from South Africa, Forro In The Dark and Huun Huur Tu with Carmen Rizzo. We also heard tracks from Tony Allen, Dennis Brown, Puerto Plata, Ted Curson and many others. The show is available for 2 weeks by visiting the KFAI site where I’ve also posted the playlist (here as well, after the break).
