Sydney radio interview with Hans Stoeve

Last night I was interviewed by Hans Stoeve over the phone from Sydney , Australia. He’s an enlightened articulate internet world music radio broadcaster from ‘down under’.  His weekly Wednesday music program Powerspot is well worth listening to.  You will be able to hear our chat next week as of Wednesday August 30. Tune in ! I shall also provide a link so you may listen without setting your alarm clocks . I’d like graciously thank Hans and Powerspot for their interest and support.

Hi All,

There was a good response to last week’s array of African sounds, so tomorrow night’s program will feature more of the same. (hey…when you’re on a good thing…stick to it) Musical treats and delights to entice from the following masters of their trade.

Toumani Diabate’s Symmetric Orchestra- CD Boulevard de L’Independance
Ali Farka Toure (The King of the Desert Blues Singers)- CD Savane- Savane
Ali Farke Toure & Toumani Diabate- Live Bozar Brussels 2005 (Promotional)

George Sapounidis- CD From Athens to Beijing – Good Morning Sun / Youth Dance / Sad Song Jam
The find of the year for me. George is a statistician by day and mild mannered Canadian Greek troubador singer of Chinese folk ballads by night. Lovely stuff and a real character who is immensely likable. Next week I will be presenting extracts from a special which aired on Canadian TV entitled Chairman George, all about his sojourns into China, the journey towards the winning over of hearts and minds. The documentary Chairman George is amongst other things a chronicle of George’s attempts to perform at the closing ceremony of the Athens Olympics, when the torch was handed over to the Beijing Olympic Committee, What the hell, this would have been a perfect moment for this Greek singing Mandarin musical genius, a two for the price of one never to be repeated bargain of a lifetime. I will be speaking with George about his journey in the next few weeks so stay tuned. I am hoping to catch up with Martin Kennedy from All India Radio later on this week for a chat regarding Echo Other their new disc. Also next week, music from Richard Khuzami, Duoud and other musicians leaning towards the sound of the East.

Regards
