Rock and Roll Hall of Famer David Byrne has had a most excellent post-Talking-Heads career as a record executive.
Byrne’s boutique label, Luaka Bop, is 21 years old. Luaka Bop has released a lot of hip music by artists from around the world... such as Susana Baca, Tom Zé and Zap Mama.
Byrne is especially fond of Brazilian music. And I’ve got a funky FREE MP3 by Jorge Ben off the Luaka Bop anniversary compilation, “Twenty First Century, Twenty First Year.”
