Radio M

Radio M: Estonian indie rock, vintage Hugh Masekela, Senegalese psych and much more!

This week on Radio M we check out the sounds of Benin's Godfather of Funk, head over to the Netherlands for fado music and take a swing over to India for some classic Bollywood sounds.

In between those stops...Ugandan 'street music', early Jamaican reggae and back to Chicago for Rob Mazurek's Sao Paulo Underground. All that travel and no jet lag- just great music!
