Adam Rudolph will be joining host David Ellenbogen on WKCR 89. FM-NY  from noon-3pm on Tuesday July 24.  This is in anticipation of the Go:Organic Orchestra’s collaboration with the Brooklyn Raga Massive this Friday July 27th 2017. http://rma.cm/2nq

You can listen live to the stream here,  and check out their 2011 chat and an exclusive live performance from Adam Rudoph’s Moving Pictures in the podcast above.

Adam Rudolph, “a pioneer in world music” (New York Times) and a “master percussionist” (Musician), has a creative, forward-thinking vision. He is inspired by his work with countless legends of music including Yusef Lateef, Pharoah Sanders, Philip Glass, L. Shankar, and Zakir Hussain. His collaboration with Brooklyn Raga Massive, known as “leaders of the Raga Renaissance” (New Yorker), promises to open new avenues of sonic exploration.

Molly Tigre – Podcast 267

We have a great hang with Ezra Gale of Molly Tigray and get a sneak preview of their new album.

Molly Tigre marries the rhythms and melodies of African music– especially the entrancing styles from Ethiopia and Mali- with a uniquely progressive and exploratory jazz sound. Featuring the compositions of saxophonist Mitch Marcus (Donovan, Dave Dreiwitz) and bassist Ezra Gale (Super Hi-Fi, Aphrodesia), the band also features saxophonist Chris Hiatt (JaponizeElephants), drummer Joe Abba (Dave Douglas, The Ramones, Donny McCaslin) and percussionist Ibrahima Kolipe Camara (National Dance Company of Guinea, Kakande). The New York City based-quintet has been stewing since 2015, but their wide-ranging sound hasn’t been captured on tape until now.
