As Jamaican music began to move away
from roots reggae, artists in another part of the world became the new standard
bearers for the music. >From the time of Bob Marley's historic concert in 1980
to mark the independence of  Zimbabwe, if
not before, reggae was popular across Africa. Artists like Alpha Blondy, Lucky
Dube, and Majek Fashek also found an international audience for the roots style
they performed with their own distinctive African influences.

Throughout November, Global Village highlights a variety of
African reggae artists and recordings, from pioneering tracks by Sonny Okosuns and Toure
Kunda to contemporary players like Rocky Dawuni and Shasha Marley, one of this year's Kora Award
winners for King of Reggae Music in Africa.

In addition to African reggae, Global
Village remembers Jamaican reggae, lover's rock and dancehall star, Gregory
Isaacs, who lost his battle with lung cancer on October 25th. In a career that
stretched over three decades, Isaacs released hundreds of records and became
one of Jamaica's most popular and distinctive singers. Music from throughout
his career will also be part of the November feature on the show.

Produced and hosted by Chris Heim, Global Village airs Monday through
Friday at 9 p.m. on KMUW FM
89.1 and is now also distributed nationally through PRX. The Global Village Top 30 Show, which airs the first Friday of
every month highlights the latest and best in world music new releases.

presenting real music with real information without being wonky or
