St Pat’s. We did hear Irish music this morning, and bands performing in the style of Irish music. We also heard the usual mix of roots, jazz, electronic, and indie rock—including LOTS of new and local tracks. If you like Branford Marsalis, Loney Dear, or Bonnie ‘Prince Billy, check out the playlist.
During the second hour we had in studio guests Meena Natarajan and Dipankar Mukherjee of Pangea World Theater, and musicians, Aida Shahghasemi (Daf) and Dan Rein (tanbur). They talked about their production of the Conference of the Birds by 12th Century Iranian poet, Farid ud-Din Attar.
