Part Three of Charlie's exploration of World Music hits; songs that came to a wider audience than one might expect for world music. From the early '90s comes a Spanish/Moroccan hybrid which became known as Radio Tarifa (pictured), there's a Senegalese track from Wasis Diop's album of 1996. Neapolitan music reimagined with a north African influence, Cape Verdean music from Caesaria Evora, one of Charlie's top world albums from the past 20 years, band leader Franco from Congo and Fela Kuti the man who created Afrobeat all appear and delight.
