World Music Against AIDS + New Releases


Show Notes:
The first hour featured music and features highlighting the global (and especially African) fight against AIDS. The second hour featured new releases including a set from the trio of recently released Rough Guides to Bollywood Legends.

# Our cover song of the week was another cut from the delightful "Classic Meets Cuba" - this one a version of Bizet's Carmen with plenty of Afro-Cuban groove. It sounds like it should be a novelty album, but it really stands up well to repeated listenings.
