Global Beat, KFAI 05/05/10

May 5, 2010

Today’s show featured new tracks from contemporary powerhouses Orgone and Aloe Blacc plus a healthy mix of Senegalese rhumba, highlife from Ghana, Soviet funk and other soulful music from around the big rock. Eric Foss from Secret Stash Records stopped by during the second hour to recount his recent journey to Lima, Peru to look for rare records and to record contemporary Afro-Peruvian musicians. The show is available as an MP3 stream for two weeks at the KFAI site where you can find the complete playlist (also posted here after the break).
