remembering marva

March 28, 2010

Remembering the big voice and spirit of N’awlins “blues queen” Marva Wright on this week’s World of Music. We’ll hear from her powerful, personal post-Katrina album After the Levees Broke.

Other highlights include Feast, a brand new release from the Cape Breton Quartet, The Cottars; and a sampling from the many artists (Zakir Hussain, Bassekou Kouyate, Rokia Traoré) coming to the area soon.

World of Music is a head-spinning  blend 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.

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

tonight and thinking ahead

October 20, 2009

TheEssentialRaviShankarTonight at Dartmouth College’s Hopkins Center: sitar legend Ravi Shankar and his daughter, Anoushka Shankar – a righteous sitar player on her own merits.

I’m going, but I just noticed today that the show has sold out. While I can’t do much about that for you I CAN let you know right now there are a couple of other hot shows coming along soon that will also likely sell out, and you’ll miss out if you don’t plan ahead to be there:

Sunday, Nov. 1st @ the Flynn –Dee Dee Bridgewater and her “Lady Day” tribute to Billie Holiday

Sunday, Nov. 9th @ Parima Thai Restaurant – Rupa & the April Fishes: With a signature blend of gypsy/Indian/Spanish/French influences, their energetic second release “Este Mundo” is due out later this month on Vermont’s own Cumbancha label.

Sunday, April 18 – Mali’s Rokia Traoré: The new recording (Tchmantché) fuses traditional instruments with blues guitar and Rokia’s powerful voice, furthering her reputation as one of Africa’s most eclectic and vibrant musicians.

There will be others, I know. Keep an eye out here. And if you hear of them before I do – let me know!
