9/30/2009 Echo Chamber


Tonight, as part of the KFAI fall pledge drive, the doctors of dub embarked on a "Magic Dub Carpet Ride"...from Cairo to Casablanca ...from Istanbul to Jerusalem...from New Delhi to Baghdad. Sure, we put a dubwise slant on things, but the music was not the usual for the Echo Chamber. The exotic list of artists included: Muslimgauze, Badawi, Natacha Atlas, Steve Shehan & Youssef el Idrissi, Dub Jihad, Bally Sagoo, Bakshish, Master Margherita, Kwhyos, Fagel Roc, Dust Galaxy, Gaudi & Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Shiina Ringo, Rainbow Arabia, Miles Davis, Anoushka Shankar & Karsh Kale, Up Bustle & Out, and many more... Also, in the mix was bits and pieces from the "Hashisheen" album from Bill Laswell and friends, plus the late Paul Bowles reading from his novel "The Sheltering Sky". A very different Echo Chamber show.
