This week’s KC soul session includes material from the new Wheedle’s Groove: Kearney Barton project, as well as new music from Shawn Lee Clutchy Hopkins, French beatsmith Wax Tailor, and Austin-based latin funk group Brownout.
“Canciones de lucha”. Latin American songs related to social movements and political struggles. (It is reassuring to find out that, knowingly or not, many of them take to heart Emma Goldman’s famous statement: “If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be part of your revolution”). The last ½ hour of the program is a small retrospective of a fascinating and controversial icon: Carmen Miranda.
