The Country Case of the Pirates' Radio of the Caribbean

12:00pm, 3-3-2019
<< Tropicology

Time today to get back to some country roots, some small-town dirt, some barefoot dancing...

But a new twist on the tropical country theme today: this playlist is set in the Caribbean, where we will jump among the various country music styles of Cuba, Brazil, and the French West Indies.

We start the show in Cuba where we will hear a set of old-timey son and guajira sounds, including a pair of early tunes from Buena Vista Social Club star Compay Segundo. In the second set we move to the Antilles, where we will hear early compas, cadence, and folk forms from Haiti. We end the first hour today with a sampling of forro, that dusty accordion-driven music from northeast Brazil.

The second hour today trends a bit more modern. We start where we ended the first hour: more music from northeast Brazil, but this time a focus on fusion sounds as forro mingles with jazz, soul, and rock. As we progress through the second hour we return to Cuba and Haiti for some small town pavilion twirlers, bringing the set to full circle. 

No city slickers allowed today!!
