#547: Vaults: Hijaz Mustapha

Email a Friend
For this edition of New Sounds, Hijaz Mustapha, the founder of the 3 Mustaphas 3, visited the WNYC studios for this 1990 program, (our last From the Vaults program in the series.) The witty ringleader of the London-based world music band talks in an indeterminate accent about his music and the traditions around the world that he’s stolen from. He also talks of fez-essentialism, refridgerator smuggling, and of course, music-making with the versatile (yet fictional) family Mustapha.
