This program presents music from Cuba, old Mexican music (early 20th Century) and music from Argentina. The literature segment presents two texts by the Spaniard Manuel Rivas, read by the author himself.
Gearing up for a summer of great shows we heard a set of contemporary desert blues with tracks by Tinariwen and Bombino (coming to the Cedar in July) and Tamikrest (whose leader, guitarist Ousmane Ag Massa, first heard Tinariwen when he was five years old). Bill brought in some rare party music from Tanzania, Jojo shared some tracks from Kenya and Uganda, and we started off the whole thing with new music from two formidable sons of African superstars, Vieux Farka Touré and Femi Kuti.
