Global A Go-Go presents:

Percussionist Hector “Coco” Barez (pictured above) is known here in Richmond for his work in the bands Bio Ritmo, Afro Zen Allstars, Miramar, Hotel X and Mekong Express, among others.

What you might not know is that he’s an in-demand session and touring musician — he spent seven years with the Grammy-winning Calle 13, and he’s played with everyone from Tego Calderon and William Cepeda to Ruben Blades and Femi Kuti.

Coco’s first solo album, El Laberinto Del Coco, has just been released.  He’ll come by the studio this week to talk about the album, playing everything from boleros to progressive metal, how one of Puerto Rico’s top congueros came to live in Richmond, and a whole lot more.  And you’ll hear some tracks from the new album as well.

Also this week: Puerto Rican plena in salsa; contemporary rock, African style; and the sounds of Haiti’s RAM, who’ll be playing live in DC on Wednesday.
