Global Beat, KFAI 11/10/10

It was a great pleasure to debut a couple of tracks from the gorgeous new CD called Afrocubism (a  summit meeting of top musicians from Mali and Cuba) alongside diverse soulful and funky tracks from Mexico, Peru, Argentina, Jamaica, Brazil and points beyond on today’s edition of Global Beat. The show is available as an MP3 stream for two weeks at the KFAI site, where you can also find the playlist (here as well, after the break).
