Program May 3, 2013

This week I'm pleased to debut (certainly on WRIR and perhaps in the USA, who knows?) a new compilation of 60s-70s vintage Roma pop 45s from the former Yugoslavia, dug and released (licensed as well, of course) by two enterprising young British vinyl collectors.  You can read about their adventures in Skopje and Belgrade here:

I'll play a track by Muharem Serbezovski (pictured above), one of the most popular singers Macedonia has produced (despite appearances, he's not the token Macedonian on the Starship Enterprise), along with some groovy related Greek and Turkish music.

Also this week: Brazilian psych 'n' soul, the early years of dancehall, and a few examples of the West African Mande musical heritage.
