Three Reggae Dylan tracks opens "Global Beat" today, followed by some old Franti & Spearhead Live tracks. Then we go into some Latin American history from R. Blades & Caetano V. Those who don't remember the past are doomed to repeat it, I've heard said.
Today's program includes two guests – the first hour features a young Parisian woman, Helen sharing some of her current favorites with the Minnesota crowd. In the second hour, Franklin Curbelo speaks of a special benefit for Cuban medical supplies coming up in south Minneapolis, on Sat. August 29 at the DuNord Distillery, in south Mpls. More info to come on this – here – in the near future.
From jazz to blues – from Africa to Italy; then on to Greece and the middle east via Canada — winding it all up with a women's son ensemble from Cuba. Another world-wind spin across the planet. Today's program opens with "A Night in Tunisia", in a smooth vinyl sound from early Hugh Masekela, joined on one track by Herb Alpert, on the Makeba classic, "Ring Bell". Two hours of unique blended sounds of a multi-culti synthesis.
