Trends in Music: Zoology
Amanda Balagur and Kai Sullivan take a somewhat tongue-in-cheek look at a current trend, especially in indie music, of animal-related titles. They’ll compare and contrast music falling under the category of same species, as well.
Today we began with cremation music from Thailand (Playasound), followed by Touareg musicians Tartit from Algeria (Fonti Musicali), and then music from Malian master of the Kora, Toumani Diabate (Hannibal), and then music from Iranian Mamak Khadem, followed by music from Herat, Afghanistan (Unesco), and then live music from North Indian Singers Sajan and Rajan Mishra, followed by music from Sweden’s Vasen (Northside), and then music from the Gbaya Pygmies of Central Africa (Gallo).
During the second hour we had live guests, the Spaghetti Western String Co. The show was closed out with music from Epirus, Greece by the Halkias Family Orchestra.
