Opening today's program in Brasil – a country undergoing a "coup d'etat" led by 'elites' and wealthy corporate leaders.  The first half hour or so features some music & voices from the Northeastern section of Brasil.  That leads into a short tribute to Bob Dylan followed by our very own Prince !  The second hour features new releases from Central and West Africa, including two tracks from Haiti as well.
