Rockin’ the sanshin ina rubadub stylee

Well this is a pleasant surprise..  Despite an unsettling history of occupation from outside forces, the Okinawa Islands (formerly the Ryukyu Kingdom) in the deep south of Japan are home to an amazing array of tropical musical flavours!  Not only a singular style of folk music (lovin’ that sanshin), but reggae and cumbia and oh my 神!!  Much more!

Also on this week’s program – Arab electro, Nigerian disco, Aussie soul, Incan prog, and who knows what else..
