Last week the 2010 Burlington Discover Jazz Fest lineup was announced, and one of the groups coming to the waterfront World tent this June is the Easy Star All-Stars. Their latest album is Lonely Hearts Dub Band, an all-dub rendering of the Beatles classic Sgt. Pepper’s album. We’ll start off this week’s World of Music with the All-Stars, and then venture into music with Amadou & Mariam (Mali), Puerto Plata (Dom. Republic), Umalali (Nicaragua) and artists from Uganda, Cuba, Portugal, Italy, and beyond.
World of Music is a dub-licious sendup of blues, poetry, jazz, and world music every Monday from 3-5pm ET on the Radiator. Online, or at 105.9FM if you’re listening in Burlington, VT.
