Global Beat, KFAI 01/27/10

Lots of new music today! – including a funky track from Guzheng* player Bei Bei and producer Shawn Lee, a new cut from the phenomenal Bassekou Kouyate and Ngoni Ba from Mali, and a new track from one of my favorite contemporary singers: Buika, a jazzy flamenco vocal genius working with the Cuban jazz titan Chucho Valdes. Plenty of other good music as well, new and old. The show sounds great when streamed through your computer to a set of large speakers and it is available for two weeks at the KFAI site where you can find the complete playlist as well (posted here too, after the break).

*(that’s a 2,000 year old set of Chinese strings)
