This Island Earth
Sunday May 15th, 2016 with David Dalle
The Manganiyar Seduction; Lubomyr Melnyk; Thomas Mapfumo; Misia; Chucho Valdes; Kaoru Watanabe; Kandia Kouyate and more

Welcome to my guest spot on This Island Earth. Always very self-indulgent for me as I joyfully build the show from many many favourites! Starting today with an incredible live recording from Chucho Valdes with wonderfully rich rythmic piano chords you could sink your teeth into, followed by one of the most stunning voices from Portugal. We will also hear some Roma brass, music from Mali, Morocco, Egypt, Zimbabwe, Iran, Japan and more! The centrepiece of the show will be a unique live recording, "The Manganiyar Seduction", an hour long performance based on a poem from Sufi Bulleh Shah with 14 singers and 25 instrumentalists from Rajasthan, India. This performance piece is completely unique in having so many traditional musicians playing together. A wonderful, passionate feast for the ears and the soul! Listen to my regular show Thursday's 2-4pm, over 2 years of programming available on-demand!

Always happy to hear from listeners, this cold afternoon it's best to stay indoors and enjoy some warm music!

Hello David, Just in the door from a road trip a while ago. Missed the 'Manganiyar Seduction' on-air, so OnDemand here we come. Whatever is this intricate / minimalist / pattern-based piece playing now, I really like. Corollaries? Thanks so much for filling in!! Only issue is you set the bar toooo daaarned high. ;^)

Yes, Lubomyr Melnyk. I always enjoy guest-hosting, allows me to be self-indulgent and focus on older favourites :)
