As guest DJ Scott will explore the musical and cultural links between New Orleans and Recife that form the basis of Nation Beat's distinctive and compelling sound.

Legends of the Preacher, the CD of which was stuck in my Dad's car CD player in Texas the first time he was listening to it, due to a confrontation with a deer on the road. Deer didn't do so well, don't know about the CD.
  Sat. 2/4/12 7:52pm Esther:

What a fantastic program. The range of music reminds me of walking around the jazz and heritage festival in New Orleans, never knowing what would hear next. Enlightening, exhilarating and educational. I mean seriously, Samba de cocu, cajun, zydeco, marakatu. What next? You've extended my vocabulary. As an artist, I have much new music to listen to as I create. Thankyou!
  Sat. 2/4/12 7:53pm barrianne:

Cannot possibly sit still listening to Luiz Gonzaga. vamos nessa!
