This summer’s hot days will be more than matched by the chill grooves on Novalima’s new release, Remixed. The Afro-Peruvian band’s Coba Coba came out earlier this year on Vermont’s own Cumbancha world music label, and now many of the tunes on that recording have been worked over by world mixmasters like DJ Spam, Zeb, and Seiji. Remixed comes out on June 16th. (Look for it as a download, on CD, and on vinyl – very retro/hip!)
On this week’s World of Music we’ll sneak in a special advance preview of Remixed (shhh!), celebrate summer with several world versions of “Summertime”, and commemorate Memorial Day in songs from WWII by Count Basie, Sammy Kaye, and Glenn Miller. Listen to “World of Music” online (Mondays, 3-5pm EDT) or at 105.9FM in Burlington, VT.
