Episode #516 "Light My Fireworks"

N=Artist's Debut on the program

This program presents Tangos, Fados, Marimbas from Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua, and poems by José Martí set to music.

New tracks from Dayme Arocena, Cheikh Lo, Omar Souleyman and much more music both vintage and fresh including this week's record store find on today's African Rhythms.

Due to technical difficulties at KFAI, Kristina is replaying a show from July 2014 that she called "Flecos Aflamencados," referring to the flamenco-like CDs she finds in the flamenco "fringe" section in Corte Ingles, that mix things like rock and roll music with cante por solea. This is one strange and fun show! (There is no updated performance calendar on this show.)
