Program October 19, 2012

I'm a big fan of Chicha Libre, the Brooklyn-based band that's turning folks all over the world on to the glories of Peruvian psychedelic cumbia.  (Apparently The Simpsons creator Matt Groening is also a big fan -- see above.)  Their album Canibalismo is one of my favorites releases of 2012.

Chicha Libre is playing on Friday night at Balliceaux and, schedule permitting, they'll stop by Global A Go-Go for some conversation and to spin a few discs for listeners.  Both the on-air appearance and the gig should be a lot of fun -- I highly recommend both to you.

Also this week: melodic reggae at its finest; Samba Mapangala sings about the upcoming election (in Kenya); chicha from Peru and champeta from Colombia.
