The World This Week - January 31st, 2014 (part 2)

There’s never a dull moment when you stage a Latin America summit in Cuba. There was the inauguration of the Hugo Chavez museum, honouring the late Venezuelan president with successor Nicolas Maduro on hand for the ribbon-cutting. This week also saw the passing of a musical giant who popularized world music before the phrase had even been coined. Pete Seeger, the legendary folk singer, passed away this week at the age of 94.
