World Music

Thank you to Sister Melinda J for sitting in for me today.

On tonight’s program it’s All Command – All the time! That’s right, you heard that correctly in both the right channel and in the left channel. Tonight on Jet Set Planet we feature all vinyl from the Command Records library! Every single record in on COMMAND. If you ever needed to balance your stereo speakers while drinking bourbon hi-balls and while digging that BONGO beat, tonight is your night!

This program presents Barbarito Díez and the Cuban Danzón, “Canciones rancheras” and Huapangos, from Mexico, and a revisit to the Milonga. The literature segment presents poetry by the Cuban Nicolás Guillén.

Play List

New music from Ba Cissoko, Konkoma (featuring members of Osibisa), and Philip Cohran and the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble mixed with vintage classics by Fela, I.K. Dairo, Augustus Pablo and lots more.

The last of the Farru interview by Magda Olson, and the last of Farru's imaginary musical recommendations. (And yes, Kristina did get her necklace untangled from her earphones…)

DJ Miguel Vargas will be taking the night off to catch FELA at the Ordway, so for tonight’s episode of Radio Pocho, the fellas from LatinoAltROCK are going to bring an awesome show, as usual. You’ve heard them on KFAI’s Radio Antilles and on the Current, and have been an excellent source in showcasing the many contemporary musical direcciones y estilos de nuestra gente.

Latin beginnings with highlight of upcoming show Fri. 6/15 at the Dakota with Ceu’ & Curumin. Another feature of Fela in the second hour – in celebration of the Broadway visit of “FELA !” at the Ordway this week !
