Program November 23, 2012

International pop superstars and Global A Go-Go are usually oil and water.  But Israeli diva Rita (pictured above -- yes, she's so popular there she only needs to use one name) is the exception to that rule -- her new album of Persian material, sung in Farsi, is an unexpected tour-de-force.  Now if she could only get Netanyahu and Ahmedinejad to sit down together and listen to it ....

Also this week: some urban takes on cumbia; Nigerian music, from highlife to juju to Afrobeat; salsa inna Puerto Rican folkloric stylee.
