2016-01-22 Top 10 World Music Albums, January edition

Gangbé Brass Band - Go Slow to LagosThis week, our (usually) monthly run-down of the best music on the planet, with a selection from each of the top 10 world music albums around. At the top of the chart is the stunningly sharp album by Benin’s Gangbe Brass Band. Seriously, you need to check this one out for yourself. And the rest are great, too. Hour 2 was mostly a free-for-all of newish releases. Thanks for listening and supporting your volunteer-powered, commercial-free community radio station!
