Program September 21, 2016

Banda Magda, who will be playing live on Global A Go-Go this week and headlining at the Broadberry later on Wednesday night, is one of those international bands that can only form in a polyglot city like New York: a Japanese vibes player, a guitarist from Argentina, and a Greek-born bandleader who sings in seven different languages.

Their music is hard to describe, but easy to list influences for: French chanson and jazz manouche, Brazilian bossa nova and forro, Greek folk and pop, and the list could go on and on.  Check 'em out on this week's edition of Global A Go-Go, in a live session from WRIR's Studio C that's scheduled to get underway at 3:30.

Also this week (time permitting): the music of Mali's female kamale ngoni star Kokanko Sata, who will be playing at the Neighborhood Resource Center on Friday (more info here); more virtuosi of the kamale ngoni (youth harp); and a new record from Noura Mint Seymali of Mauritania.
