The first ½ hour presents music from Nicaragua and Guatemala. The second ½ hour includes some examples of music from the Latin American Wind Band tradition. The third ½ hour presents a few examples of music from the general area where Argentina and Paraguay coincide. The last part explores some “lunfardo” and presents a couple of stories told by the great Argentinean “cuenta cuentos” Luis Landriscina.
Tonight, a TWO-fer. Two bands for the price of NONE. This show features the music of Al's Rockabilly Quartet with an appearance by Poverty Hash near the end of the show on tour and coming through MN headlining this year's Palmfest and was originally broadcast on July 21, 2010.
This week on MinneCulture, Andy Driscoll takes an in-depth look at Penumbra Theatre—celebrating its 34th anniversary as the only Twin Cities theatre producing plays by, of and for the African-American community.
Tonight we blasted off into space on a summer “Lunar Lunatics” special…commemorating the first moon landing 7/20/1969. This part of the show was planned. What wasn’t planned until days before was that we would also be doing a tribute to the late Lincoln “Sugar” Minott. Sadly, Sugar passed away at the young age of 54 on July 10th. This dubwise trip to the moon, and the far reaches of space is dedicated to the memory of the great Sugar Minott.
