While the weather outside is frightful, bulerias would be so delighful…Kristina sends the warmth of flamenco your way on this show with decidedly modern bulerias. ("Decidedly modern" is a relative term, referring to flamenco music pre-1975…when Franco died and Spain split open to new influences.)
During this edition of Marya Morstad's Art Matters, the Grammy award-winning Director of the Sounds of Blackness — Gary Dennis Hines — speaks with guest host Brenda Bell Brown about his inspiration — his mother, the late Doris Hines — and what she inspired in him.

In honor of my father who recently passed away I brought in some of his long playing records to feature some favorite singers from a previous era. Still great music from the archives of America. I also sent out some tributes to other recently deceased friends, including a set of musical politic-poetry from indigenous activist recently deceased, John Trudell.
