March 2017 Global Beat Archives

Global Beat on March 8th was pre-empted for KFAI's annual International Women's Day special programming.  

Opening today's show with sounds of Paris — with a bossa nova & a folk swing.  Paris is also known for its links to African nations – so I go to a very recent release from Senegalese mbalax artist, Youssou N'dour.  After an extended set from N'dour I play a brand new release from a French jazz combo covering some American classics.  In recent weeks I have been playing vocalists from North Africa and continue with tracks from Souad Massi's first release; Massi is an Algerian ex-pat living in France.
