The attentive reader will notice a heap of brand-new entries this month, from Chilean rap diva Ana Tijoux and Lebanese trumpeter (and batucada leader) Ibrahim Maalouf to some feisty modern Brazilian music by Maga Bo and flamenco funk by NYC-based Caramelo. I'll write more about some of these album soon, but click the links now for more info and song samples.
