Journey Without Maps brings you vintage, rare, and underground global music from uncharted sonic territories. Every week, I unearth a new musical landscape: African soul & funk, Latin rhythms, eastern European electronica, Middle East psychedelic, Asian surf rock … and more.
Journey Without Maps is a production of WERA-LP 96.7 FM and Arlington Independent Media. For archives, updates, and to broadcast the episodes on your station, contact:
Son, calypso, meringue, salsa, pachanga, and mambo all have direct roots to the African motherland. Inspired by distant but familiar rhythms, musicians across Africa soaked up radio broadcasts of Cuban orchestras and created a new take on Afro-Latin sounds.
