remembering katrina

New Orleans hurricane memorial

This week’s World of Music is dedicated to the people of the Gulf Coast, as we remember the 4th anniversary of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita making landfall in the last week of August, 2005.

Some things have improved since then. Many – too many – have not.

The incredible positivity and spirit of the people who live along the Gulf Coast have remarkably remained strong through it all, from the storms through the horrific aftermath. We’ll honor them with the wealth of music native to the region. Hip-hop artist Black Kold Madina will be there, you may have seen her incredible story as told in the award-winning documentary, Trouble the Water – along with classic sounds from Louis Armstrong, the Nevilles, and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. We’re knee deep in the Big Easy this week.

Wear your beads, bring an appetite and some gator repellent, and get ready to get down.

World of Music is blues, jazz, poetry and roots tunes. Every Monday on the Radiator from 3-5pm ET: online, or at 105.9FM in Burlington, VT.

Black Kold MadinaWhen Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005, Kimberly Rivers Roberts and her husband, cat, dog, and several other family members rode out the storm in the attic of their home. Kim filmed it, and the whole story was told in last year’s incredibly powerful documentary Trouble the Water. Kim is also a singer, and her hip-hop debut came out recently under the pseudonym “Black Kold Madina”. We’ll give a listen to it this week on World of Music, along with a bunch of new releases from all over, including Egypt, Spain, Tanzania, Argentina, and China! Listen to “World of Music” online (Mondays, 3-5pm EDT) or at 105.9FM in Burlington, VT.
