In Boston, lots of emerging music to be heard here. In Seattle, here.

To hear rhythms with a different accent, tune in here. Click on the "ECOUTER RFI" tab on upper left, then "RFI MUSIQUE."

On a recent day, first came "Caterpillar," a jazzy, sultry song from Alain Souchon. Then Rafael & Toots, with a sort of '80s rock ballad backed by a Carla Bruni-esque voice, on "Adieu Haiti". More: Toumani Diabate, drums, whistles, flutes and such in "Africa Challenge." "Day by Day," by Femi Kuti. You get the idea. So go explore.

Or for something altogether different.
