Program June 1, 2012

What's new in the world of world music this week is -- old.  I'll feature a bunch of reissues from all over the globe, with music influenced by American youth culture of the 60s and 70s, especially soul and psychedelic rock.

Leading off will be Turkey's underrated (so says Derdiyoklar Ikilisi (unfortunately they're just a duo -- the beardless young man is a rapturous fan).  I don't know much about the guy on the left (Ismail YK), but you won't be hearing him this week, or probably anytime soon, on Global A Go-Go.

Also this week: the glorious sounds of Kinshasa and Brazzaville, the first known recording of Davy Graham's "Anji," and Mali's Rail Band plays Afrobeat (who knew?).
