Every once in a long while a band comes along which nails it to floor.'World Radio' was formed in New York by brothers, Jean and Richard Shepherd and blends everything really cool about Latin and African-based Caribbean rhythms. They serve it up with lots of funk and soul, lyrical integrity and cultural representation. The title track, La Raiz 'The Root' sets the tone for a thoroughly enjoyable disc that sounds like it should have come from The Mission District or East LA rather than New York. It must be that global warming thing.
