A nice funky set of mellow Soul Jazz, Afro Jazz, Caribbean Soul, Reggae, Cumbia, and Salsa… featuring the music of Melvin Sparks, Oliver Sain, Wilbert Harrison, The Ramblers Dance Band, Desmond Dekker, La Senora Dinamita, The Lebron Brothers Orchestra, and K Frimpong His Cubano Fiestas…
Next Tuesday, March 8, is the centenary of International Women’s Day; in celebration, all of the music of this program is interpreted by women (mainly from Latin America but also from Spain and Portugal). The literature segment presents the second and last part of a dialog on literature with the Nobel Prize Mario Vargas Llosa.
