Tonight the Echo Chamber presented our annual All-Jamaican Special — celebrating the 45th Anniversary of Jamaican Independence, and In Memoriam for Robert, my late father-in-law who passed away 8 years ago on July 27th. So, this All-Jamaican celebration we like to call One Fe Robert.
Andy filling in for Pam on a hot Tuesday morning. Weather and breakfast themed sets (duh!), an in depth exploration of the work of Joe Henry, and a tribute to poet/performer/philosopher Sekou Sundiata who died last week at the age of 58.
For the first hour we listened to a concert from the great Irish band, Altan.
Finishing out the show we heard music from Java (Nonesuch), Gypsy Manouche music of France from Moreno (Al Sur), followed by music from Sardinia by Spaccanapoli (Real World), A Korean folk song (JVC), music from Serbia, Yugoslavia (Rounder), a French ballad by Jean-Francois Dutertre (Buda), a few tracks from the new recording by Aly Bain of the Shetland Islands and Ale Moller of Sweden (Northside).
