In this rebroadcast from Sept. 13, 2020, we travel from Cuba back to Africa, where the rhythms that gave birth to what we now know as "salsa" originated. Featuring a range of styles spanning the early 1960s to the present from Benin, Cabo Verde, Cameroon, Congo, Ethiopia, Gambia, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Mali, and Senegal. Music for the Masses invites you on an excursion of sound and rhythm. Discover the music of established and emerging artists, both signed and unsigned, on the international music scene. Expect the unexpected. You might want to pack a map and a sandwich. For the avid globe-hopper and armchair traveler alike. Broadcast live from Catskill.
