11/14/2012 Modern Kicks

Finally.  A return to normal for the program with no special election coverage or holiday themed playlist to contend with.  Just two hours of good ol' fashioned "regular music."  Whatever THAT means.

Check out this exciting two-hour set of new music -- including new songs from SUMMER GIRLFRIENDS, THE EERIES, WARM SODA, G. GREEN and HOT FREAK NATION.

Tonight we filled the first hour with a bunch of new stuff, then shifted gears and filled most of the rest of the program with all Jamaican music. This has been an annual tradition for some time - doing an all Jamaican show in early November in remembrance of my late Jamaican father-in-law Robert. The new music included excellent releases from Soothsayers, Rod Anton & the Ligerians, Anthony B, U-Roy, Aldubb, Steve Steppa, and Sangue Bom.  And the all-JA mix for Robert included: The Heptones & Sound Dimension, Niney the Observer, The Mighty Diamonds, Prince Buster & Lee Perry, Junior Byles, Augustus Pablo, Bob Marley & the Wailers, Burning Spear, Bunny Lee & the Aggrovators, Wingless Angels (feat. Justin Hinds), Desmond Dekker, Lloyd's All Stars, Cherine Anderson, Omar Perry, Sly & Robbie, Jesse Royal, Don Corleone, Jackie Mittoo, Scientist, Barry Brown & U-Mike, Dillinger, Dennis Brown, Tony Tuff, King Jammy, Ras Michael & the Sons of Negus, and Oku Onoura.

Dawn Avery: Indian cellist, Rhianna Yazzie: Indian playwright

 

Please join Laura Waterman Wittstock on Wednesday, November 14, 2011 as she talks with Rhiana Yazzie and Dawn Avery. Hear both of these talented women talk about their careers and their latest work.
 
Rhiana Yazzie’s work has been seen on stages from Alaska to Mexico with 5 new play productions across the US since 2008. She is a two time winner of a Playwrights’ Center Jerome Playwriting Fellowship (2010/2011 and 2006/2007) and is a Playwrights’ Center Core Member. Recently, Rhiana was jointly commissioned by the Ashland Oregon Shakespeare Festival and the NY Public Theater to write a play for American Revolutions: the United States History Cycle. 
A new play, written by members of the NNT Actor Ensemble is a look at the end of the world as we know it! Inspired by the hoopla of the end of the Mayan calendar, the New Native Theatre Actor Ensemble’s new play is about the year 2012 from a Native American perspective right from our own Franklin Avenue. Get ready for the return of Indian Alien ancestors who come to fix the ills of our Native people in the western hemisphere, complete with the arrival of rock star ancestors and dancing neon buffalo!
 
Written by members of the NNT Actor Ensemble, Rhiana Yazzie, Inez DeCoteau, and Andrea Fairbanks.

The New York Times has called Dawn Avery a “daring cellist.” She is a composer and vocalist of incredible depth and passion, stands alone in her field as one of the most celebrated, original and passionate virtuosos of her time.  Her decades’ long exploration of sacred music has led her to study the relationship between music and spirituality, especially in meditative practice. As a renowned and beloved workshop leader, Avery also uses meditation and 30 years of experience with shamans, healers, history, myth, world music and dance to help participants uncover their life's calling.

Well known and respected in many musical worlds, Avery’s wide range of award winning musical works have been influenced by Indigenous thematic material, in particular her Mohawk heritage. Her works have been performed and supported by Lincoln Center, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian, The Ford Foundation, and American Composers Forum.

Mayda played with OSO on a previous "Live From Studio 5!" episode and this week she returned with her very own newly-minted or newly-configured techno group.  A little techno, a little hip-hop, a little rock with a little 4' 10" star!  Check it out the show in our FOREVER archives here:  https://archive.org/details/1251Mayda
