The music that Sexteto Tabalá plays was declared "an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity" by UNESCO in 2005: a century-old blend of cumbia and Cuban son with influences from the Americas, Africa and Europe. We're honored to have the group in our studio on the eve of its Lincoln Center Out of Doors / CTMD Heritage Sunday free concert (on Sunday August 7th at 1 pm along with two great local Colombian groups).

Your show is a great start to my evening. I'm enjoying the music very much.
Ditto Shanee, this track is particularly superb :)
Richard from Venezuela:
Greetings Rob and all the listeners.
Thanks Other David and greetings Richard and everyone!
Richard from Venezuela:
Hanggai sounds amazing.
I saw them at Bonnaroo this year and yes, they were amazing!
Hanggai you mean - yeah, I heard they really got people going at Bonnaroo! I saw them at Drom in NY and they were great there too. It's interesting 'cause they toured the US once before but it was as a four-piece acoustic unit, more traditional, but this time they did their full throttle Mongolian folk rock extravaganza!
I saw Huun Huur Tu a couple of years ago and was expecting Hanggai to be similar, but these guys were something else! Not to say that Huun Huur Tu wasn't great.
Shanee and others - if you're interested in a Tuvan folk rock hybrid that is in some ways farther out than Hanggai, check out Yat-Kha! (I know many of you know them already.) Albert Kuvezin, leader of Yat-Kha was originally in Huun Huur Tu but wanted to do less traditional stuff.
Cool to to hear these Norwegian tunes via New Jersey, loving this set. Greetings from Norway !
Rob i rarely hear your show as you're doing it so i take this opportunity to Thank you...I especially dug that by Mari Boine & company. Lovely.
