World of Music features Ivory Coast guitarist Manou Gallo this week, from her self-titled 2006 release. With songs like Chanter de l’amour, Stars, and Hommage, she’s a powerful artist with messages carried out in driving guitar riffs, searing vocals, and unrelenting grooves.

And we’ll check out new sounds from drummer/singer Brian Blade (his new one’s called Mama Rosa);  Baloji, a Congolese artist now living in Belgium; and singer Maryem Tollar, an Egyptian singer who’s relocated to Toronto.

World of Music is blues, jazz, poetry and great roots tunes. On the Radiator Mondays from 3-5pm ET: online or at 105.9FM in Burlington, VT.
