…and listen for more new 2009 world releases in the next show!

year-end review

December 6, 2009

Argentina's Chango Spasiuk (photo by Henryk Kotowski)

In the 4pm hour of this week’s show, World of Music offers a year-end showcase featuring some of the year’s best releases.

Consider it a preview, actually. It’s been another big year for world music and one show wouldn’t be enough to even touch the surface of all the 2009 recordings. We’ll be doing more of the same for the next few shows leading up to the New Year.

Highlights: Cuban Latin Grammy winner Omara Portuondo’s beautiful new collection, Gracias; the latest – Seya – from Malian Grammy nominee Oumou Sangare; and recent releases from Puerto Rican trombonist/bandleader Willie Colón, Indian superstar Kailash Kher, and Argentinian accordionist Chango Spasiuk. It’s going to be a wild ride.

World of Music is a swingin’ year-end mix of blues, jazz, poetry, and world music every Monday from 3-5pm ET on the Radiator. You can join the fun online or at 105.9FM if you’re listening in Burlington, VT.

Tuva and beyond

April 5, 2009

2009-apr6-alash2

Sunday morning here, watching the melting spring snow fall off the trees in heavy clumps. Listening to new music and getting ready for tomorrow’s World of Music show on the Radiator…we’ll check out ‘Alash’ – the Tuvan throat singers who came to Bennington last weekend. A new recording from World Village takes us on a journey with the Basque group Oreka Tx, they went to Mongolia with traditional Spanish percussion instruments and played with native musicians to amazing effect.2009-apr6-alash2

We’ll get into some vintage Gil Gilberto (circa 1971 when he was channeling Cream, and Traffic) and listen to new releases by Cuba’s Omara Portuondo, Somali hip-hopper K’Naan, and the godfather of Jamaican dub, Lee “Scratch” Perry.

Listen to “World of Music” online (tomorrow, 3-5pm) or at 105.9FM in Burlington, VT.
