Lots more cool stuff to come, M-Pan! Glad you're digging it. Both Cimbalom Unlimited and Queen of Turquoise are superb throughout.

Maxing out the marimba minimalism. Very cool indeed. (And all of Man's student will be getting automatic A's while this is on... ;^)

Maximum minimalism makes Manmohan's marks magnificent.

d;^) And, when the inevitable heavy metal part of the program comes on ... the F's will start flying, fer-sher.

The only heavy metal I have coming up is some Gamelan Pacifica with another Philip Glass cover and a Lou Harrison concerto.

Loved this whole program today especially a horn pf some sort that I think is by Basel Rajoub...wow! It's time for some more African beats like these. where can I get his music. TheMinimalism, well it's just great! So merci! Beaucoup avec un grand bisou! Mo

Hey there Monique LaRocque! So glad you're enjoying the show. The Rajoub is indeed terrific, and can be now found wherever you get your music from. Stay tuned for more great minimalism!

Oh! The Gamelan, bring more on...I'm a devout minimalist at heart in almost everything, almost!Mo

3:05 PM, January 29th, 2017
Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Yeah, me too, Mo. Almost everything. Gamelan comin' up shortly for you...

3:07 PM, January 29th, 2017
Rob Bitschofsky (host)
And oh, hey, Mo; that horn you heard earlier might also have been Idris Ackamoor and the Pyramids. I played their new one right after the Rajoub stuff, so who knows?
