Global Beat, KFAI 10/13/10

October 13, 2010

I don’t participate in the Cult of the New but somehow great new tracks keep showing up in time to play them on Global Beat. Today’s case in point: freshness from Radio Citizen, Chico Mann, Bilal, Belleruche, Natacha Atlas, Jed & Lucia, and Sara Mitra – all new tracks! – leavened with classics from Milton Nascimento, K. Frimpong, Luiz Bonfá and many more. You can hear the show via MP3 stream at the KFAI site for two weeks; the complete playlist is posted both there and here, after the break.
