Global A Go-Go: Friday August 27, 5-7 PM presents:
Here in Richmond, we have three really interesting South Africa-themed art exhibitions in museums right now. Darkroom: Photography And New Media In South Africa Since 1950 opened at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts last week and opens at the Visual Arts Center Of Richmond Friday evening, and Imaging South Africa: Collection Projects Of Siemon Allen also opens Friday evening at Virginia Commonwealth University's Anderson Gallery. Here are links for all three venues:
With all this South African activity, I thought I'd pitch in with a set covering over 50 years of South African recording history, from Miriam Makeba (pictured above with the Manhattan Brothers) to the Tshetsha Boys (you gotta see this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qyBVh48zS4I).
Also this week: a couple of sampler/samplee pairs, the early years of Franco & Le TPOK Jazz, and some wild Balkan tunes.
