World Hiphop : New Releases

Show Notes:
Hiphop's impact is being felt the world over. Reflected in the culture of another place, the music is being transformed into unique expressions and world views. From Spain to Senegal, New Zealand to Mexico, the result is energetic, engaging, and danceable. Today's show surveyed some of the world's best, a far cry from commercial American hiphop. For more info and some mp3s, see these sites: African Hiphop (note the article on government efforts to ban hiphop in D.R. Congo), Polish Hiphop, Asian Hiphop, Scandinavian Hiphop, Philippines Hiphop, Madagascar Hiphop (in French).

# Our cover song of the week # was Miriam Makeba's version of the Brazilian classic "Mas Que Nada." And I couldn't help giving another spin this week to Lila Downs' retooling the Mexican classic "La Cucaracha."
