New music this morning from Indigenous, Juliana Hatfield and Sebastien Tellier. Don’t be surprised if this is the breakthrough album for Indigenous, where all the Big Head Todd fans who have not yet grooved on them finally do. Juliana still makes the music Liz Phair wishes she still did (and maybe will again!), and Sebastien Tellier is still fabulously moody. It was a good new music morning.
Today we began with cremation music from Thailand (Playasound), followed by Touareg musicians Tartit from Algeria (Fonti Musicali), and then music from Malian master of the Kora, Toumani Diabate (Hannibal), and then music from Iranian Mamak Khadem, followed by music from Herat, Afghanistan (Unesco), and then live music from North Indian Singers Sajan and Rajan Mishra, followed by music from Sweden’s Vasen (Northside), and then music from the Gbaya Pygmies of Central Africa (Gallo).
During the second hour we had live guests, the Spaghetti Western String Co. The show was closed out with music from Epirus, Greece by the Halkias Family Orchestra.
