Included: the origin of the 2002 Russian pop song "A Man Like Putin," which Vladamir Putin used in his 2004 presidential campaign; the legacy of Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti via his son Seun, who took over Fela's band at age 14; the unlikely collaboration between Kazakhstan violinist Marat Bisengaliev and Erran Baron Cohen, who composed the music for his brother Sacha's Kazakhstan-poking "Borat." Also: a performance by Mariza, Portugal's fado queen.
