Poquito y Bueno: A Short and Sweet Flamenco Show
La Magdalena, who recently visited our Mini Apple from the Big Apple to perform and teach master dance classes at Anda Flamenco, picked the music for this show. In this segment of the show’s flamenco interview, the wine is taking effect, and Kristina talks more than her guest (oops!), Susana di Palma of Zorongo Flamenco.
Singer/songwriter Mary Cutrufello was raised in Connecticut and spent years as a recording artist in Texas. She settled in the Twin Cities 10 years ago, and continues to play locally and nationally. Known as a “honky-tonk heroine,” she’s been featured on Austin City Limits and has produced a number of albums, including a major release on Mercury Records. Vocal nodes silenced her for three years, but in 2007 she returned to performing and released the album, “35.” Her most recent release is “Fireflies till they’re Gone,” which showcases both her full-throated rock wail and quiet intensity.
Short show tonight – as both of your faithful Echo Chamber co-sidekicks were caught nappin’…but Swiss got the party started at 2:30 with Dub Qawwali, Jeck Pilpil & Peacepipe, and Dubblestandart. From there we moved into the new “Meditation” release from the Nazarenes B.B. Seaton’s new cover of “Come See About Me” on Give Thanks Records; and Mista Majah P’s new “Karma” single. On top of this were new vibes from: Junior Toots, Webcam Hi-Fi, Gene Clemetson, Gentlemen’s Dub Club, Kush Arora, Sunmonx, Nneka, Prince Fatty meets Mutant Hi-Fi, Khayo Ben Yameen, and Céu.
