 Putumayo Records have spent the last fifteen years introducing fresh ears to the planet-wide possibilities of contemporary music. They’re celebrating this milestone with the release of two new African music compilations, and with the debut of their latest discovery. Mapumba represents modern Africa. He’s a Congolese songwriter with a velvety voice and an ear for hooky pop and soul. He’s touring North America in support of Putumayo’s anniversary and you’ll meet Mapumba in Today’s Spotlight.

+ LOTS OF NEW VIDEOS: from reggaeton’s big boss, Daddy Yankee, BRAND NEW Cat Empire from Australia, and J-pop’s new heady groove, Love Psychedelico!

INSIDE THE BEAT: Later, we’ll ‘Hot It Up’ with the newest release from Mr. Vegas, one of dancehall’s brightest lights. After a string of successful albums in the Caribbean, Hot It Up is now blazing up the American and European charts. Odds are good that with this new disc, and his dynamic performances, the versatile Mr. Vegas has a winning hand. Get ready to snap your fingers and wine with it, Inside The Beat.
