That Groove Thing

« previous episode | next episode »

Saturday, February 13, 2010

Hear some seriously joyful noise on Steven Bernstein’s "Diaspora Suite," where collective interplay, melodic improvising, and guitar wailing combine for something exciting and free. We’ll hear music from "Diaspora Suite," along with the Vancouver-based mainly acoustic Caribbean folktronica of Silvana Kane, a Peruvian born singer, operating as Pacifika. Also, there’s explosive groove and intricate melodic layers from Famoro Dioubaté's Kakande, not to mention lush vocals, flutes, sinewy guitars, cellos and Dioubaté's balafon virtuosity. And much more.
