Taking their dance music on the road.

Every now and again Radio M heads out to some of Chicago's best music venues to roll tape on the global music shows they book. We call the segment From the Stage and over the past few years you may have heard artists such as Konono No.1 from the Congo at The Empty Bottle, Spain's The Pinkertones on stage at The Green Dolphin, or Mali's Vieux Farka Toure at the Hideout.

This week on Radio M we bring you Electro Valicon or Electro Tropical from Colombia with Bomba Estereo.  Also some cuts from a handful of past From the Stage performances and a little summertime music.
