With our pal Randy joining us inna Echo Chamber, the doctors of dub tried out lots of new dub downloads…plus a few other new and old releases. Sure we featured some reknowned artists, like Babatunje Olatunji, Michael Rose, Lee Perry, and Sly Robbie. But the long list included the likes of I Boochi, King Chilla, Fleur Earth, Manwel T (remixing Hotdrop), Disrupt, Blue Elephant Studio, and Adam Rudolph’s Moving Pictures. By the end of the show, Randy’s head had become a crazy, bulbous, punchbag of sound…
Today we listened to Nuba Raml al Maya performed by Ensemble Masano Tazi of Morocco (le Chante du Monde). This is music of the Arab-Andalousian tradition that was part of the Moorish empire of Spain and North Africa.
In the second hour we heard music from the Madmen of Bengal (le Chante du Monde)…the are the street mystics. We also heard music from Son De la Frontera from the flamenco tradition of Spain (World Village), music of the Luba-Shankadi of Zaire, the Okros ensemble of Hungary (Rounder), Ougenweide, a folk-rock group singing in Medieval German (Bear), music from the latest release of Paddy O’Brien’s Chulrua (Shanachie), Music from French Canada by Andre Brunet (Green Linnet) and Jean Carignan (Tout Grin).
