What is the future of the Pakistan-Afghanistan relationship, and what does it mean for the U.S.? Worldview talks with journalist Ahmed Rashid about his latest book, Pakistan on the Brink. Also, Global Notes contributor Catalina Maria Johnson joins Worldview to look at bands that are retrofitting global sounds by applying contemporary technology to traditional music. She highlights tunes that pay homage to the golden age of Ethiopian music, mid-century Colombian sounds and the Judeo-Spanish language of the 1500’s.
