Global Beat, KFAI 02/03/10

February 3, 2010

Today’s edition of Global Beat was graced with fresh new tracks from Skeletons (contemporary Afrobeat) and the Bamboos (just one track today – so much more to get to over the coming weeks) plus plenty of other classics both ancient and modern. You can relive the experience via MP3 stream at the KFAI site (available for two weeks only); the playlist is posted there and here as well, after the break.
