Program May 10, 2013

Previous reissues by the Analog Africa, Soundway and Popular African Music labels, plus an amazing 2011 reunion album, have provided proof positive that Benin's Orchestre Poly-Rythmo De Cotonou is one of the greatest African bands of all time.

Analog Africa is back with their fourth Poly-Rythmo release, and I'm still finding new songs to add to my list of favorites from this amazing group.  I'll spin one of them on this week's program.

Also this week: a set of music from Zimbabwe, a little bit of funky Asia-tronica, and some cumbia-flavored rock 'n' roll.
