Funding Drive!! Help the music continue to ring out in its beauty, its anger, its joy, its sadness, in all its extraordinary forms on CKCU on Thursday afternoons!

My second and final show for the 2021 CKCU funding drive. Pledges have continued to trickle in over the past week and I am over halfway to my personal goal! But the funding drive total still has a long way to go, we need your help! There is no CKCU without you! We are using https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/CKCU/p2p/CKCU-2021-funding-drive/team/david-dalle/ so making online donations is easier than ever before, and you can get your tax receipt immediately. Thinking of a theme for today which shows the extraordinary range of music presented on my program, we will not hear any music from a single tradition today, only collaborations from multiple traditions. Some of these are more organic while some are more deliberate, but all are fantastic!
Three duo collaborations. Chinese and Japanese; Uzbek and Chinese, Peruvian and Iranian.

Guo Yue & Joji Hirota - Red Ribbon - Shanachie

Abduvali Abdurashidov & Wu Man - Music of Central Asia Vol. 10 Borderlands - Smithsonian Folkways

Continuing with three different collaborations all featuring Flamenco singers, with Cuban pianist Bebo Valdés, Malian musicians led by Toumani Diabaté, and with the Faiz Ali Faiz Qawwali group.

For the next set we will hear four tracks from one of the most stunning, unique recordings I've heard. It's too much to go into here, but it is music from indigenous people recorded throughout islands in the Indian and Pacific islands, mixed together with the artist's input. There are music traditions I have never heard before mixed with other music traditions I have never heard before. You can read a lot more about it and listen to most of the album on this show on-demand:
