This week on World of Music we’ll hear the latest release from guitarist/singer Oswin Chin Behilia. He’s 72 this year, with a career that’s spanned the better part of the last 5 decades.

Behilia’s new recording – Liber – musically documents the social and political life of his native Curaçao, in particular the island’s uneasy relationship as a territory of the Netherlands.

We’re off to the Antilles this week with Behilia, and also pausing to remember the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina’s landfall along the Gulf Coast with a lot of jazzy sounds from New Orleans.

World of Music is an expansive, winding delta of blues, poetry, jazz, and international music every Monday from 3-5pm ET on the Radiator. Online, or at 105.9FM if you’re listening in Burlington, VT.
