Program August 24, 2012

Staff Benda Bilili have come a long way -- from homeless in the Kinshasa zoo to Rotary Club spokesmen.  (Yes, this is the first ever reference to the Rotary Club on Global A Go-Go, and quite possibly the last.)

This amazing Congolese band releases their second album in September and makes their first tour of the USA in October, including a performance at the Howard Theatre in Washington DC.  You'll hear a song from their new album Bouger Le Monde! this week on Global A Go-Go.

Also this week: Balkan boogie; what's new in the world of world music is -- afropop; the Congolese-South African axis; salsa is the universal language of groove.
