Still getting over the great live music from last week: Fran and Duncan, the Greater Twin Cities Blues Music Society’s awards, and now it’s Halloween. Before you make your weekend plans, check out the playlist, maybe you’ll be inspired. Festival of Appropriation, the Mountain Goats, the Sensational Joint Chiefs are doing a reunion show at the Uptown Friday—the fun doesn’t end!
Encuentro presents the second and last program dedicated to the songs of Frida Kahlo’s life: songs that she loved, songs that were popular in Mexico during her lifetime, and songs that were the musical backdrop for her artistic work.
Today we began with a live concert by local treasure, North Indian Vocalist, Pooja Goswami. It was recorded in January at the new Hindu Temple by Dan Rein.
In the second hour we listen to an interview with Paddy O’Brien and Pat Egan of Chulrua, we also heard live tracks recorded at the Crossroads in Zumbrota Minnesota 27 October. We also listen to Turkish Asik music (Inedit), Music from Kurdistan (Earth CD’s and Playasound) and music from Burma (Smithsonian).
