Well folks maybe I can be of service. See yesterday Jimmy went off to the huge Musical Instrument Museum here in Phoenix and came back with all sorts of photos for us. Looking through his shots of various world percussion from various countries really set me back in my chair – I’ve got so much to learn! So I began digging.
As I searched around for different world drums and sounds, I came across a website I will probably be spending a majority of the remainder of the year scanning through. Its catalog of artists is literally that grand!
WOMAD, World Of Music, Art, and Dance, is an international festival bringing together artists from all over the globe, and all of their featured artists deserve high praise. It’s an organization I hope that we can be apart of someday.
Please check it out and let me know what you think. Let me know who you’ve listened to. And of course let me know if you find some hip-shaking, heart-pounding rhythms.
Here’s what I’ve been listening to today! Enjoy and share!!
Tonight (June 1st) and every Tuesday this month, the Dirty Bourbon River Show will be featured in TheBigBusk!, a weekly live music burlesque and vaudeville hour at the Howlin' Wolf on 907 S. Peters in the Den.
