Sampling a divine trinity of Latin rhythm sources: Cuba, Venezuela, and Brazil!
Starting to see the first new releases of interest in 2010: new Vampire Weekend in stores today, we heard the single Cousins this morning. We also heard new music from Lissie, and local music from Heatbox and Pert’ Near Sandstone’s new one.
Music for your inner crook. Sunshine Pop from the Left Coast. And the Mexicali BrASS!
Opens with tribute to the late Willie Mitchell. Next some fine Northern Soul, retro funk psychedelic blues. Second hour is French Afrobeat, latin funk soul jazz…
Music from Cuba. Danzones from Cuba and Mexico. Toña “La negra”, from Veracruz, México. Tangos interpreted by women. Mexican trios. Classical music with a Latin American folk touch.
