April 2017 Global Beat Archives

Opening with a short set of Dylan covers, in a country-vein – then crossing the border south to Mexico for a couple Lila Downs' tracks.  After that I make a revisit to Sergent Garcia, a relatively unknown group with Spanish & French heritage, and a West-Coast group Ozomatli.  Then the old-school Panamanian salsero Ruben Blades, and the Fania All-Stars, along with other vintage Latino performers. The next set includes musicians from the Venezuelan Andes, and Spain.

Doug is out of "the office" — but Tony Paul brings some "Shakin' & Baking" — old and new skool !!  Check it out… thanks Tony !!
