Mexico’s Cinco de Mayo festivities are bound to be much more private and subdued this week, with the recent flu outbreak. World of Music celebrates the occasion on their behalf in a salute of Latino culture with mariachis, rancheras, and hot tejano two-steps! Including the sassy sounds of NY City’s “Pistolera”; a musical tribute to the memory and legacy of Frida Kahlo; and the powerful voice of Oaxaca’s Lila Downs. Listen to “World of Music” online (Mondays, 3-5pm EDT) or at 105.9FM in Burlington, VT.
