Planet Groove, December 27, 2016

Playlist from Planet Groove, December 27, 2016.


This week I guest hosted KRCC's long running "Planet Groove", KRCC's world music show. Soem highlights:

  • George Michael just passed away. I found a Michael performance that works for Planet Groove-- a duet with Astrud Gilberto on the Brazilian classic "Desafinado", from the Red Hot + Rio collection.
  • Two people requested Edith Piaf. I had not been planning on any Piaf, but I'm always happy to play a request that fits the show. Since I had two requests I played two songs.
  • "Tornados vs. Dynamos 3-3" by Real Sounds of Africa relates the story of a dramatic football (soccer) match, including both singing about the game and spoken (imagined?) commentary on the game. I don't know if it's real or not but it's a fantastic track. It's also more than 13 minutes in total, but on KRCC if a DJ knows a great song they don't have to hold back because it's too long.
  • Adele & Zalem are a French didgeridoo duet whose music inspired me to take up the instrument myself. I played their "Urban Tree", the title track from their first album. Check it out in the video below.
