Melting Pot

Been a bit of time since I was able to do a regular show on KPFK and I feel like I’ve finally got the right balance to everything. This Sunday’s Melting Pot was one of my favorites since starting the show, a little bit of everything for everybody. It begins with a song for the people of Japan after this past week’s devastating earthquake and tsunami, Billy Harper’s “Cry of Hunger,” from there we have new music from Adrian Quesada’s latest project, the Echocentrics (which I pronounce “Eco-centrics” for some odd reason) feat. Tita Lima, Nostalgia 77, Dum Dum Girls, Quadron remixed, Zion I + the Grouch, La Sera, WildCookie, Shawn Lee feat. Chhom Nimol of Dengue Fever, KING and the first recordings in 20 years from the Orchestre Poly-Ryhtmo de Cotonou! Enjoy the show, next week we’ll have the return of Oliver Wang of Soul-Sides.com’s Side Dishes guest set in addition to even more goodies!
