Had a chance to see Konono No. 1 once upon a long time ago. (... So long ago the Blues Fest was still really good ... ;^) INCREDIBLE live!!!! Unbelievable energy level, especially the 16-or-so-ish drummer on his totally crappy kit, who just absolutely could not stop. Played massive almost non-stop beats in the pouring rain. Wow!

Yeah, the more I listen to them and read about them, the more I get that they're just a totally awesome and utterly unique outfit. Groovy stuff.

Now hold on to your hat, PB; it's the cosmic sounds of Cabo Verde!

I always secure any head-gear, as well as blow-up protect my socks for this program! Even put my tray table in the upright and locked position. q;^)

2:14 PM, June 5th, 2016
Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Wise. Especially with today's stuff. Lots more goodies to come!

Nice show, Rob!...As usual TIE it`s an amazing "Gosto de Que e Bom" (Taste of what is good)! Thanks!

2:43 PM, June 5th, 2016
Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Hey Sonia! Glad you're liking the show, and thanks for the translation, too. I was wondering if they were singing about the ghost of something! Was that Portuguese or Spanish?

2:44 PM, June 5th, 2016
Sonia
It`s Portuguese

2:45 PM, June 5th, 2016
Rob Bitschofsky (host)
That's what I thought, especially with that Brazilian sound.

2:47 PM, June 5th, 2016
Sonia
This show, makes me feel like one of those "conquistadors"....always discovering some new, interesting and totally fascinating in TIE.

2:47 PM, June 5th, 2016
Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Right? We're always chasing new frontiers here.

2:49 PM, June 5th, 2016
PeterB
Louis + Leon vs Pharoah!! WAAAH!!! I am running outa duct tape to secure things with though...

2:52 PM, June 5th, 2016
Sonia
You did good, Rob. Don`t worry....It`s Homenaje a los embajadores ('hommage to the Ambassadors')

2:55 PM, June 5th, 2016
Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Peter: by the end of this set, everything in your house will be swirling around you. Sonia: Thanks! I'm always butchering all kinds of languages here on the show!

2:57 PM, June 5th, 2016
Sonia
That`s the beauty of it, right?....It`s what makes CKCU great with the richness, and variety of cultures. We all have our share of 'butchering' (tell me about it!)

3:01 PM, June 5th, 2016
Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Well, we certainly all do our share here at This Island Earth. Sort of goes with the territory. Or territories, I should say!

3:04 PM, June 5th, 2016
PeterB
Crap. Outa duct tape. Have at least stapled Toto and the couch to the floor though... And BIG HEY to Sonya BTW!

3:08 PM, June 5th, 2016
Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Just don't open any of your cabinets. Especially not when the next song comes on.

3:09 PM, June 5th, 2016
Sonia
Hey, PeterB. Same to you!. And sorry about the tape, try to tie them with some shoe laces, that sometimes helps.

3:14 PM, June 5th, 2016
PeterB
SonIA (d'oh!). Are ye the same that sometimes types into Loosely Connected (Weds 12-13:30), or other programs I occasionally get to fill-in on? If so, great to see the cross-connections. If not, maybe give that a whirl? Happy sonic mayhem abounds either way...

3:43 PM, June 5th, 2016
Sonia
It must be another Sonia, PeterB.But I am on Wednesday, too (7:00PM, Spanish Show). If you have filled in for me, thanks. If not, I would like you to do it in the future, if needed. Have a nice afternoon.-It`s still raining, so keep dry and comfy.

COOL Sonia!! Punto De Encuentro = Meeting Point, ¿Sí? I am sure I have checked this out before. But will try to make a point. Thank you OnDemand.
