Women of African Music: Great Voices from the Continent

Cast & director of PANGEA WORLD THEATER & TEATRO DEL PUEBLO’s premire production of the enw play “OUTSDE THE CIRCLEMAR.15-17 at Intermedia Arts in Minneapolis

3/15 in a nutshell…
We’re back, and glad to be welcoming you aboard! The “Ooh” went time-hopping, starting off with some ’60s instros with “Ska” in the title, and winding up with Dr. Buzzard associate Gichy Dan and his Beachwood #9 outfit, after a glitchy detour through 2Tone which was simply… madness. Suggs & crew’s Prince Buster cover simply wouldn’t play straight through no matter which deck we fed it into, so Georgie Fame’s mid-60s remake had to get the job done. But hey_ how ‘bout that Gichy Dan! Meanwhile in the “Voov”, Sherwood dropped a cool, laid-back MFSB cut bearing the oddly-Kraftwerkian sounding title “Human Machine” for openers. A “curveballs” set involving “not THOSE” Scorpions, Eagles, or Crystals kicked off with… not THAT Fela! A Lionel Hampton/Shiina Ringo DJ mix played us into the 4:00 hour where the 4(+1)-in-a-row set was titled “Bad Boys, Rudies & Miscreants”. GotchaSKAvered fed us our first Hungarian “Lollipop”, we went juggling with TSPO, and we dug some more Dan (Gichy, not Steely) before winding up with a Mutant Frogs set… Ribbit, ribbit!

Listen to a rebroadcast of the very first Poquito y Bueno, focusing on the palo of alegrías, and featuring Timo Lozano telling the great story of how he joined José Greco’s company.

On tonight’s episode of Radio Pocho, we debut our 3rd (Weds.) monthly DJ, Brandon Bagaason of the local hip-hop group, Big Quarters.
