Robert Van Diggele A nice album with catchy songs in hi res (24/88.2) stereo and surround too. A steal for only $5.00, worth more though. Favorite track: Tonada De Luna Llena.

Madison has been a crossroads for people of almost every domestic and international culture who against incredible odds have smuggled their music, traditions and worldview into Wisconsin. The music made by the individuals who have appeared as special guests on this project tells this story of love, identity and pride. These very special musicians honor us with their contribution and Madison is very lucky to have them. Thank you to JAH Boogie and Aaron Konkol of Natty Nation for their righteous but real vibrations, Tom Ross and Elena Wittneben of the Handphibians for their bom axé, Tani Diakite and Paddy Cassidy of the Afro Funk Stars for their West African poetry, Chris Wagoner and Angela Dominguez for their swing. Willie Gracia por su tumbao, Luis Armacanqui for his güira, Kevin Knapp for the flare, Edi Rey por la cumbia and Darren Sterud for his trombone force. We want to give a special thanks to el maestro Juan Tomas Martinez Yepez who always leaves a piece of his heart here in Madison. Thank you Glenn Fung and Carlos Guzman for sharing with everyone your music and your creativity.
