i’m new here

For the last show of February we’re celebrating Black History Month.

This week World of Music puts the new Gil Scott-Heron release I’m New Here front and center, along with reflective poetry by Nikki Giovanni, Langston Hughes, and the big voice of Mahalia Jackson. We’ll also hear from the wide African diaspora including Afro-Peruvian and Afro-Cuban sounds, and recordings from Central America, America, and Africa itself.

World of Music is a far-flung culture of blues, poetry, jazz, and world music every Monday from 3-5pm ET on the Radiator.  Online, or at 105.9FM if you’re listening in Burlington, VT.
