Today's Global Beat kicks it off with Latin sounds — classics, tradicion, and something fresh & local – new from Malamanya their first full length cd !! Otros cubanos – Bebo Valdes & Omar Rosa tambien. After that – Doug hosts Sarah L. from the Nightingale Trio celebrating a new release and a party to kick it off Fri.
After the half, we heard (among other things) three dubs from the current line-up of The Skatalites. They're currently touring the new Platinum Ska album, a unique one in the band's career in that every tune on it has a companion dub version, and we're really looking forward to the Cedar show Fri. 9/16, in part because they'll probably have some Platinum Ska available at the merch booth, and the currently all-next-generation touring lineup was hand-picked by original members, most of whom have since left our world for the next.
