Seeing another year out in rub-a-dub stylee… From Ghetto Priest’s Auld Lang Syne/Slave’s Lament versions (from the rare ON-U Sound single), to the brand new Inna Steppa Dub from Improvisators meet Iration Steppas, to the modern-meets-ancient sounds of Jah Wobble’s new Chinese Dub album (on 30Hertz), it was quite an irie party.
Today we listened the South Indian violin duo, Krshnan and Vijaya Lalgudi. It was the first part of a live concert for the Indian Music Society of Minnesota. The concert was from 30 March, 2008 and was recorded and edited by Dan Rein.
The second hour began with music from the Kings of Polka from Finland (Go). The group included Anti Jarvela, known for his work with Frigg and JPP. That was followed by classical music from Sunda (World Music Library), and then the Turkish gypsy group, the Barbaros Erkose Ensemble (Golden Horn Records), followed by Breton singer, Erik Marchand and Les Balkaniks (Chante du Monde), Then a track from local string man, Greg Herriges off of his latest recording, Telluric Currents (New Folk Records), then music from La Musgana of Spain (Mad River0, then a track from Donegal fiddler, Frank Cassidy, followed by the Kanaks of New Caledonia in the South Pacific (Le Chante du Monde), then Irish flute player Harry Bradley (Outlet), and the show was finished off with German folk rock group, Ougenweide (Bear).
