April 2016 Global Beat Archives

Doug celebrates the Spring Pledge drive with fellow KFAI dj Al B. Ware in the first hour and then is joined by Dale Loomer in the final hour of today's 2016 Spring Pledge Drive edition of "Global Beat".  Special Thanks go out to our beloved Auto Club members who have earmarked a portion of their own funds to support the wide variety of International Music on KFAI — each weekday from noon-2pm… Efkadisto, Gracie, Merci, Muchas Gracias, Shukrun, Domo Arigato, Miigwich, and many more "thanks" !

Afro-Andean dance music, music from Argentina & Brasil – pertaining to recent film screenings @ 35th Annual MSP Int'l. Film Fest (mspfilm.org).

Next I follow up with music from another former Portuguese colony, Angola.  From Samba to Semba… including a Congolese dance version… ending this week's program with a new release from Cumbancha – Lakou Mizik's "Wa Di Yo", out of Haiti !
