Global A Go-Go: Friday April 18, 2014

No, that isn't Bootsy Collins (above) in pointy babouche slippers -- it's Hassan Hakmoun, the Moroccan sintir player who graced the stage of the Richmond Folk Festival in 2012.  Hassan has a brand-new album and it rocks like a mother -- you'll hear a track on this week's program.

Also this week: the Wassoulou sound of south-west Mali; some chevere Latin soul; Afro-funk and Afrobeat.
