Totó La Momposina's new album, Tambolero, is a reworking of her 1993 album La Candela Viva, regarded by many as one of Colombia's most important albums.

Betto Arcos hosts Global Village on KFPK in Los Angeles, and he frequently visits All Things Considered on the weekends to share the new music he's discovered while traveling the world. This time, he brings NPR's Arun Rath a stack of new records that re-imagine classic styles of Latin music, from Afro-Cuban jazz to Mexican banda.
