Orchestra Baobab leads to musicians of the former African colonies of Portugal onto Central American artist Andy Palacio from Belize Guatemala and Brasilian women. I ended with local spoken word artist Desdamona’s new release The Source.
Tonight the Echo Chamber presented a full hour of The Drastics:http://www.thedrastics.com recorded live (by Turntable Terrorist) at Martyrs in Chicago last April.
