I usually guest on WBEZ's Radio M the third Friday of the month, but my February appearance was pushed back a week—so I'll join host Tony Sarabia tonight. The show airs from 9-11 PM on 91.5 FM, and I roll in at 9:30 for half an hour. Tonight I'll play classic calypso from Mighty Sparrow, expat Ethiopian music, vintage New York salsa, new work from the great Angolan singer Bonga, and a track from the recent album by the hard-hitting New York Gypsy All-Stars, who play Martyrs' tomorrow night. After the jump you can watch a video of them performing a track from their debut, Romantech (Traditional Crossroads).

Today's playlist:

Yannis Kyriakides & Andy Moor, Folia (Unsounds)
Barbara Randolph, The Collection (Spectrum Music)
Omer Klein, Rockets on the Balcony (Tzadik)
Various artists, Highlife Time: Nigerian and Ghanaian Sound (Vampi Soul)
Kazuo Uehara, Experimental Music of Japan, Vol 8: Assemblage (Edition Omega Point)
