Global A Go-Go (Music)

http://www.globalagogo.com

I describe Global A Go-Go as “music from around the world in the universal language of groove.” In short, you could call it a world music program that emphasizes the danceable over the folkloric. "World music" is one of those terms that everybody uses but nobody claims to like; I guess I'm that group too. My favorite definition of world music is that it's "local music from somewhere else." That's a pretty good description of my show as well -- most of the artists I play aren't the least bit obscure, they're just popular somewhere other than Richmond, Virginia.
