First of all, Siemon Allen's appearance as my guest co-host, where we'll be playing music from his remarkable South African collection, has been postponed until next week's program on October 1. Before that happens, you'll be able to hear Siemon, WRIR's own David Noyes and yours truly discuss collecting African music on Wednesday at 6 PM at the Anderson Gallery here in Richmond:
Today's program starts with a new recording from Balkanize! (pictured above), who describe themselves as "Richmond, Virginia's only ensemble of old world Turko-Balkan folk music." For now, anyway. They're playing on Monday night at The Camel along with two other Richmond-based world music bands in what promises to be a major ear-opener of a show.
Also this week: son habanero, the Cuban root of today's salsa; cumbia from Mexico and Colombia (claro que si), Argentina and Germany (que?); a few of my favorite groovin' new releases.
