This week, a variety of music from around the Caribbean. You may hear calypso, reggae, ska, son, salsa, bachata, soca, Cuban hip-hop, and other styles of music. The show was prompted by great new CDs by Kobo Town and Lord Mouse & the Kalypso Katz — be sure to check those out, along with the stunning new Afro-Latin album from Osvaldo Hernandéz-Napoles. Hour 2 veered more toward new releases. Enjoy, and have a great weekend!
