“Palabristas: Word Slingers” On this episode of RP we’re visited by Chican@/Latin@ spoken word collective Palabristas. A haiku battle breaks out throughout the show and a guest DJ joins the Pocho crew to spin some tunes…Sir Mex-A-Lot.
We have spoken word performances by Rodrigo Sanchez Chavarria, Larry Lucio and Emmanuelle Ortiz as well as an interview by New York based poet Brandon Lacy Campos. Keep track of this great collective at Palabrista.org
And as always we have the tunes that make spring bloom.
Another night filled with a bunch of new dub… Starting off with the new Bandulu Dub remix album “Volcanic Eruptions” (on Dan Dada Records), Sardinia Bass Legalize’s new “Timeline” EP (aquietbump), and the very cool “Marijuana Dreams” from Dubblestandart (Echo Beach).
Thanks to Kevin Steinman:http://www.kevinsteinman.com for sharing his new CD this morning, a week before it’s available. We gave away a few copies, too. Those people are the first on their blocks to have the lovely pop melodies and terrific instrumentation in Kevin’s music. As we truly get into spring, open your windows and blast this great local music! We also heard new music from Eliza Gilkyson, out on May 3rd, and Make We Remember from Femi Kuti’s brand new Africa for Africa.
