Hommage to the late Naná Vasconcelos + New Releases

Welcome to This Island Earth, CKCU's weekly 3 hour program on Sunday afternoon which features music the very best music from around the world. This afternoon we begin with a hommage to the late great Bazilian percussionist/vocalist, Naná Vasconcelos, who passed away on March 9, 2016 - just over a week ago. We will hear from various of his recordings over the last few decades, whether it be as a solo artist, bandleader or as a collaborator. Following that, we feature some new releases from Mauritius, Somaliland, the Middle East, Dominican Republic, South Asia, the Balkans, Italy, Bulgaria and Finland. Stick around and drop me a line with any questions, comments or feedback.

Sutari's got chops, and great blending! ;^) Interesting sounds. Reminds me oddly of DakhaBrakha, mixed with Pink Floyd / Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast. Gotta go make me a snack now.
