Always enjoy hearing something from the Dom. Rep. which is a bit off the beaten path. Would like to hear some Xiomara Fortuna and Irka Mateo thrown into the mix when you can. Lots to choose from on Fortuna's recent release "Paseando". BTW: The Fulanito song is an urban version of the rootsy merengue style known as perico ripiao.
  Sat. 8/18/12 7:56pm doca:

in nineteenth-century brazil there happened a revolt in the northeastern states because the local populations were against the introduction of the metric system. the event was called the revolt of the kilogram-smashers ("revolta dos quebra-quilos").
  Sat. 8/18/12 7:57pm doca:

there was also a revolt against the introduction of cemiteries some time earlier in that century.

Doca, I had no idea that the metric system theme in today's show extended beyond that one track - thanks for enlightening us!

To David Little - I really like perico ripiao but didn't quite have it together to get something in that set today! I have Irka Mateo's Anacaona cd with me though, I will see if I can get something in...
  Sat. 8/18/12 8:44pm David Little:

Thanks for spinning the Irka Mateo track. She's quite a unique artist. Along with a Brazilian musician Tadeu de Marco, she recorded a very interesting CD called 'Tres Americas' back in the mid '90's as the duo Irka y Tadeu. It's a blend of jazz meets the music of Brazil, the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Definitely worth looking for.

Interesting, thanks very much David, I'll definitely look for Tres Americas...
