This month's Top 10 is led off by the funk-meets-Bollywood goodness of Chicago-based Funkadesi, a band that has the good fortune not only to have assembled a first-class group of musicians, but also to have a nice endorsement quote from the candidate now leading the polls in the US presidential race. Tune in to Spin The Globe on Oct. 10 to hear songs from all of these albums, or catch the show archive right here on SoundRoots.
