Opening today's program with music from a wide variety of artists from Paris !  Including a preview of Paris Combo returning to the Dakota in a couple weeks.  Speaking of the Dakota — a listening preview of Gaby Moreno – an up & coming new artist originally from Guatemala with a wide range of modern styles at her & her band's command.  Also I offer a review of the Colombian band I did not catch in their recent visit – Monsieur Perine.  Staying in the Hispanic diaspora a couple artists made the program today – one from Peru and the other out of L.A.
