Our first post-pledge drive show: Swedish bagpipes (solo and ensemble), original music from Helsingland (SW), live performance from Mindekirkens 20th annual Leif Erikson Festival and a Danish tune to finish up.
Another wide selection of what makes world music so fascinating to me.
Dub…dub…and still more dub. A bunch of new stuff this week, including: the sublime Dub Qawwali:http://www.sixdegreesrecords.com/artists.php?artist=Gaudi_%5Bplus%5D_Nus... (Six Degrees) from Gaudi + Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan; Burning Babylon’s excellent Garden of Dub:http://www.burningbabylon.com/discography.html (which came out in 2006); the freshly released Skatalites album Rolling Steady on Motion Records (recorded in 1983); and two new Studio One archive collections from Heartbeat:http://www.heartbeatreggae.com/.
