Lebanon 1: Fairuz, Woman For All Seasons, Sunday Sept. 8 http://wcbe.org/post/lebanon-1-fairuz-woman-all-seasons-sunday-sept-8 <p>Fairuz is the most popular living singer throughout the Arabic- speaking world and an artist with no real counterpart in Europe or the Americas. Since the '50s, she has appealed across boundaries of age, gender, class, religion, nationality, regional dialect, and political persuasion. Creating music as serious&nbsp; and engaged as it is popular, Fairuz- along with her collaborators from the Rahbani family of composer poets- has achieved near-universal appeal during a time of unprecedented division and social strife.

We visit the state of Veracruz to learn the history of the Afro-Mexican <em>son jarocho </em>sound, made famous by Ritchie Valens' 1958 hit cover of La Bamba, a tradtional jarocho tune. Then, we visit the Costa Chica of Guerrero, where Afro- Mexican communities are fighting for government recognition to help preserve faltering musical traditions.
