Program June 8, 2012

Some of the best reggae music in the world these days is made in London, where there's a developing sound that connects directly to the classic roots era, that uses dub as an element of performance, and that's ambitiously open to the wide range of influences that are almost inevitable in one of the world's most cosmopolitan cities.

This week on Global A Go-Go, I'll feature an hour of music from a few of my favorite London reggae artists, mostly recent material (including the latest from Little Axe, pictured above) with a little bit of older stuff in the mix -- certainly not a comprehensive look at the London reggae scene, more of a personal perspective on a place where good things are happening.

Also: what's new in the world of world music this week is -- Balkan; and a set of Latin funk from right here in the US of A.
