Playlist: Music of the World with Stephen Kent for June 3, 2010 - 11:00am

Inspired by the current Bay Area presence of the Basque accordion maestro, Kepa Junkera, I began today's show with a series of accordion pieces from around the world, and then moved towards a West African set and the announcement of this Saturday's Berkeley World Music Festival [www.berkeleyworldmusic.com].
