June 2017 Global Beat Archives

In an opening set – I feature 2 songs from 3 women vocalists alternating to start today's program.  The countries represented in the set are Jordan, Mali & The Congo.  Then another birthday celebration – this time a bitter sweet tribute to Prince – who would have been 58 had he still been alive today.  An eight-song set tribute fills up the middle part of today's program.  Later in my two-hour set I return to a female vocalist from Spain and a Cuba/Spain collaboration featuring Cigala & Bebo Valdes, who relocated to Sweden.

Summer Solstice special !! From Croatia to Jamaica and on to Spain… Portugal and the Middle East… but… there is an outrage re. the Philando Castile murder verdict… so I slip in a couple Peter Tosh rebel rockers… before taking further trajectories across the planet after THAT was SAID.
