New Music from South America

« previous episode | next episode »

Friday, June 17, 2011

For this New Sounds, we'll dive into music from South America, with much of it from Brazil & Argentina.  We’ll hear some selections from a new compilation from the Red Hot organization: “Red Hot and Rio,” Vol. 2,  including music from Caetano Veloso, remixed by Prefuse 73, David Byrne with Caetano, and Beirut performing a Caetano song, "o Leaozinho." 

Also, we’ll revisit Chancha via Circuito, the Argentinian producer who chops up and repurposes folk guitar and flutes to make them almost clubby.  Plus, music from Afro-Peruvian singer Susana Baca, and something from the Gotan Project.

Hey, loved the show! For clarification, it's Chancha Via Circuito's remix of Tremor's song "Caracol" :)
