Classic Cumbia Sounds

Feb. 18, 2011

This week on Radio M Chicago Reader music writer Peter Margasak stops by for another installment of New Sounds.

Every third Friday of the month Peter gathers up a small stack of new releases from around the globe that are filling his mailbox and brings them by the studio for our ears.

This month his picks include big band cumbia  from Colombia, kora music from Mali and wicked guitar music from a man who knows his way around South Indian Classical music but can also lay down some nimble jazz riffs.

It's New Sounds with Peter Margasak. Also the sounds of Angola, Finland, Zambia and Thailand.
