All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen talks with Banning Eyre (Afropop) and Rob Weisberg (WFMU's Trans Pacific Sound Paradise) about some of the standout artists at this year's GlobalFEST. The annual world-music and cultural festival, held each winter in New York City, is a brief but intense one-day event featuring more than a dozen international bands and artists. This year's showcase included club music from Argentina, Colombian roots music, traditional songs from Ireland, Romanian hybrid blues and much more. Hear concert highlights on this edition of All Songs Considered.
