When reggae meets reggaeton

Feel the universal language of music with Sound Travels, every Sunday night when I spin world music that takes us to the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, Europe or this week…to Guatemala, Colombia, even to Australia.

Listen to the mixtape below.
Afro-futurism meets left of center dancehall reggae and left of center reggaeton in the first Sound Travels program for September. Fresh from my own travels to Guatemala, I have new music from Doctor Nativo, new music from radio host/producer Auntie Flo and dusty Anatolian-styled psych from Altin Gun. Colombiana, Miss Red, shows she's got dancehall chops and Brooklyn-ite flair. Nickodemus has another fresh release and Domican girl group MULA has a real nice touch with some let-of-center reggaeton.

I've also been blown away with the unheralded work of Australia's Multicultural Arts Victoria lately. I had to include this outlier for some extremely dope and consciously present sounds including new work from Amin Payne and Hari Sivanesan conjuring hip-hop through the lens of the traditional sounds of Australia's First People.
