This week we explore the musical styles that sailed from Africa to the Americas, and have been bouncing back and forth ever since. Latin music from Africa, African percussion underlying Latin songs — and other twists on Afro-Latin music this week. Plus cuts from new released by Erev Rav, Lara Bello, Andra Kouyate, Chicago Afrobeat Project, and more.
Have a great weekend!
