Show Notes: I've managed to collect a large number of cover songs, covers of both western pop tunes and well-known "world music" tunes. So each week I'll be playing one or two of these, starting with this week's Arabic-flavored cover of the Cuban classic "Chan-Chan." I'm still trying to figure out more about Rhany and how -- living in Tunesia and Morocco -- he got his taste for salsa and Cuban music.

This show had several distinct sets. Etienne Cakpo was unable to come to the studio for a scheduled interview during the recent International Childrens Festival, but kindly sent some CDs from Benin, including those from Gasango Music & Dance, Fâ, and Dénagan Janvier Honfo. We also had three sets prompted by listener requests: a fiddling/Nordic set (starting with Frifot), a didjeridoo set (starting with Dr Didj), and a couple South African township tunes from the CD "Only the Poorman Feel It."
