August 2017 Global Beat Archives

The first morning episode… in quite a while.  My new regular slot is now – TUESDAY, from 8 – 10 AM.  Catch me – if you can !~!

On this first episode, following the "Wake-Up Call", … H – E- L – L – O.. I'm back !

I have done an early show with a couple of co-hosts in the way back – Justine & then my sister – on "Global Dawn".  But this year, begins a whole 'nother thang.


Central America comes into focus a bit with music from the Garifuna Collective – returning to the Cedar soon… alongside Ruben Blades (Panama) & Lila Downs (Oaxaca, Mex.) in the first set of today's program.  Doug offers up some Cuban musicians as the first hour unfolds… into the second.  Some efforts from the famous Buena Vista Social Club tours… including Barbarito Torres, Eliades Ochoa, & Ruben Gonzalez; some modern Cuban musicians from the '90's – Manolin & Paulito F.G.; and finally a local Cuban combo from the Twin Cities… Malamanya !
