Representing over 25 countries of indigenous music, this is a world music survey. The rare recordings we will be playing were made as an anthropological record of cultural folkloric music that, by and large, are ceremonial or ritual in nature. These ethnographic representations of the diversity of manipulated sound demonstrate the vast dimension of tribal and even modernized culture. An interesting element to much of these recordings is that the music functions as an integral part of the culture rather than a peripheral accoutrement.
This weeks show will be brought to you by guest DJ and chief navagator Dan Andrews.
