The first hour of this program presents music from Argentina, Cuba and Haiti, as well as a critical/musical approximation to María Magdalena. The music and literature segments of the second hour are dedicated to the 100th anniversary of José María Arguedas, the Peruvian writer and anthropologist (1911-1969).
Tonight The Echo Chamber commemorated the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. — featuring much of the “I Have A Dream” speech; the “Xterminator presents MLK Dub” album; and many tracks fitting the theme. One new track debuted tonight was “Dis Ya Time” from Jazz’min Tutum, with her dub poetry layered on top of Madtone’s “Calling Live On Channel” tune. Another debut tonight for Kaysha Lee & Ras Takura with “Take Me from Disgrace”. Also tonight, new material from Dr. King Cobra, Macumbadub, Mikus, Savage Aural Hotbed, Oxodo, and Purdy.
Tonight’s program is an all-music program. The music spans the ages and is in many styles. Music is in French from various French-speaking countries. Songs are announced in French with an English short commentary after. News of activities for French speakers is also given
