TODO MUNDO CUMBIA

Yes folks that's right, I am the Guest Host for DJ Andujar's "clandestino" radio show on WMUA next Monday, May 25th, 2009. The show is from 2:30 to 4:30, Eastern Standard US time zone, broadcasting from the UMass Amherst radio station WMUA, 91.1 FM. You can go to the station's web site, www.wmua.org, and stream the show live (no archives at this point), or if you can't listen 'live' on the computer or the radio, then click on playlists, and type in "clandestino", and you can see what I played. I will be selecting all the latest cumbias (ZZK, Bersa Discos, cumbia villera, cumbiaton, etc) as well as classic old school, new traditionalists, experimental, folkloric, and related genres like vallenato, chicha, porro, and champeta (different but still related!). Casting a wide net, we are! Clandestino, hosted by DJ Andujar, is a great show that concentrates on groove & rhythm, from funk to Latin, jazz to world. Many thanks to Andujar for giving me this opportunity. Don't miss it each week - he will be back June first. ¡Sabor de cuuuuuumbia!!
