Your Daily Lick: Rupa and the April Fishes

Este Mundo (Cumbancha Records)

The title Este Mundo (This World) is apropos; Rupa and the April Fishes dipped their brushes in a global palette to color this collection of upbeat pop tunes. Fans of Manu Chao will appreciate the cumbia-meets-reggae undertones, yet this San Francisco act pays equally heartfelt homage to the music of France, India, the Balkans, and more.

At Mezzanine (444 Jessie St., San Francisco) on October 29. 8 p.m., $10
