Global A Go-Go presents:
Cumbia is probably more popular now than it’s ever been. And that’s saying something when you’re talking about a style of music almost 200 years old.
La Misa Negra (pictured above) from Oakland CA is part of the latest generation of musicians to embrace the idiom. You’ll hear a track from their brand-new album this week on Global A Go-Go, alongside sounds from the 1950s that inspire them.
Also this week: the best reggae songs I heard this summer; when Meklit says “I want to sing for them all,” who’s she talking about?; and a beautiful new recording from Mali’s Trio Da Kali and the Kronos Quartet.
