Lucia Pulido + Esau Mwamwaya

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments




First, recent Fader mag cover boy Esau Mwamwaya, from Malawi (until recently) by way of London, stops by to toast along with a few of his own tracks and favorite tracks from Malawi and beyond. On the new mixtape "The Very Best" (offered as a free download c/o Green Owl, the New York environment-friendly label), Esau mixes traditional Malawian music and other styles with contemporary beats, in collaboration with UK-based European DJ duo Johan Karlberg and Etienne Tron a/k/a Radioclit (who discovered him running a furniture shop on their street) and some very heavy friends.

Later in the show: a visit with Lucia Pulido, a gifted and charismatic Colombian-born singer known for her brilliant interpretations of Colombian traditional vocal styles. She got her start singing "Nueva Cancion" with partner Ivan Benavides (later of Bloque, who has also worked with Carlos Vives, Sidestepper etc.) - but really found her traditional voice when she moved away from Colombia, to New York in 1994.

(From: http://www.colombiage.com/2008/08/25/lucia-pulido/): Lucia is currently working on several projects with musicians in New York and in different countries in Latin America. Some of these are: an experimental project based on Latin American traditional songs with Argentinean guitarist Fernando Tarrés (two cds from this collaboration, Songbooks 1 and 2 are released; Songbook 3 will be released in 2009); a project “América Contemporánea - um Outro Centro” with Brazilian pianist Benjamim Taubkin and several musicians from different countries in Latin America; the classic repertoire of Latin American songs of broken love performed with musicians based in New York; New York cellist Erik Friedlander’s “Colombiana” project; and the performance of experimental arrangements of Colombian traditional music, as well as newly composed songs written for her, with her ensemble in New York.

Lucia's latest CD is "Waning Moon" (Adventure Music) and the NY release party is at Joe's Pub, 425 Lafayette St. in NYC on Tuesday March 31 at 7:30pm. She'll also be at Barbes in Park Slope, Brooklyn on Monday April 13.

Ah, it's the crazy microphone again! Bryce sounded awesome on that mic last night after 11, but I'm not sure it works so well for Esau. It's an interesting effect, though.

wasn't the mia sample from the clash's very own "go straight to hell boy"? great continuity though...
  Sat. 3/28/09 6:40pm Your DJ:

Right you are! (I think...)

That's an infinite improvement over Vampire Weekend's version.
