version is for a retitled 2016 album of the same 'Extraordinarily internationalist' tracks with 'Haitian, Chinese, Filipino, Native American, Puerto Rican, Salvadoran, Nicaraguan, Jamaican and other heritages represented' (S F Bay Guardian). Hear the young voice like green shoots of Francisco Alarcon!
