Global A Go-Go presents:

I’m digging deep into older Cuban music on this week’s program — we’re talking charanga, cha-cha-cha, son montuno, tumbao; recordings from the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s. Plus a track from the recently reissued debut as bandleader of Ruben Gonzalez (pictured above), whose career went all the way back to those days.

Also this week: percussion from South America’s Pacific coast; now that Chad has been added to Trump’s travel ban, let’s hear some music from that threatening (?) country; and more dancefloor gems from South Africa.
