Last day of summer, and hey – it’s been a great one! Tomorrow’s the autumn equinox so we’ll give summer a big sendoff on this week’s World of Music. Nothing but straight-ahead fun grooves, from reggae legends Marcia Griffiths and Black Uhuru to the very newest tunes from Rupa & the April Fishes, India’s Kailash Kher, and the ever-adventurous Kronos Quartet.
We’ll swing by the sunny islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique with the new recording Tumbélé! , and catch some festive mariachi sounds from Mexico’s Alicia Villareal, and Los Mariachis “Arriba Juárez”.
It’s the annual summer-ending “Fun in the Sun” show this week. (Lame title, but great music.)
World of Music is blues, jazz, poetry and roots. Every Monday on the Radiator from 3-5pm ET: online, or at 105.9FM in Burlington, VT.
