2015-04-03 World Music Elders

Dorothy MasukaThe upcoming birthdays of Hugh Masekela (4/4) and Ravi Shankar (4/7) prompted a train of thought that stopped at the station of “let’s do a radio show featuring musicians who are/were still making music as elders.” Along with those two, let’s hear from Asha Bhosle, Wendo Kolosoy, Abdullah Ibrahim, Celia Cruz, Ernest Ranglin, Dorothy Masuka, Tito Puente, Miriam Makeba, Tony Allen, and others! Plus a few new releases to round out the show.
