International Bellows Battle: Uri Sharlin (accordion, US/Israel) & Dogcat
vs Mangey Khan (harmonium, India) & Barmer Boys

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments

Two live sets tonight spotlighting a couple of our favorite bellows instruments! Ace accordionist Uri Sharlin and Dogcat blend jazz and classical influences with Balkan rhythms, Arabic modes and Brazilian harmonies. Tonight's FMU session is the first half of Dogcat's Garden State spring awakening: Uri and band will perform at the Puffin Cultural Forum in Teaneck on Saturday evening May 3rd.

Plus: Harmonium-driven Rajasthani roots band the Barmer Boys made a big splash at home on MTV India's Coke Studio - the subcontinent's answer to MTV Unplugged. And now vocal powerhouse Mangey Khan and the Boys are raising eyebrows abroad, on their first US tour. The Barmer Boys' New York debut is this Thursday night (April 24th) at Drom in the East Village but their New Jersey debut will be right here on WFMU!

Massive thanks to our illustrious engineers, Gil Shuster (Barmer Boys) and Mark Koch (Uri Sharlin & Dogcat)!

Hi Rob!
I'm afraid i will fall asleep soon! (quarter past nmidnight here.)
Just want to say here again your show is awesome!

Will you get them back to some WFMU-session when tey are round NY coming may?
Avatar    Sat. 4/26/14 6:33pm Guido from Cologne:

... i still have two boxes of bollywood-cassettes from the 90ies to work through ... some sheer brilliance coupled with the some of the most horrible kitsch. This will be some work ...
Avatar Sat. 4/26/14 6:37pm Whooda:

This is going to be good, if not different.
Avatar    Sat. 4/26/14 6:43pm Rob W:

Good evening everyone, thanks for listening. And ah yes Guido, sounds like fun! I have a very high kitsch threshold, some of you may think too high! But I do know what you mean...
Avatar    Sat. 4/26/14 6:51pm Guido from Cologne:

Love the Barmer Boys.
Avatar    Sat. 4/26/14 6:52pm Fredericks:

These Barmers cast a spell.
Avatar    Sat. 4/26/14 6:53pm maestroso:

G'day Rob, tuning in late... The Book of Face keeps telling me I should check out Kyary Pamyu Pamyu (so does DJ Keili) so I'll have to listen to this show in archive...
Avatar Sat. 4/26/14 6:58pm Billy Jam:

loving the show Rob!
Avatar    Sat. 4/26/14 7:00pm Rob W:

Ah Maestroso, so that's the other DJ who played Kyary Pamyu Pamyu on FMU! Makes sense now... I was pleasantly surprised to see her name auto-spell as I was writing my playlist so I didn't have to spell it!
Avatar    Sat. 4/26/14 7:00pm Rob W:

Thanks Billy Jam, Fredericks, Guido!
Avatar Sat. 4/26/14 7:00pm Whooda:

Another brilliantly engineered show.
Avatar    Sat. 4/26/14 7:02pm Rob W:

Thanks Whooda - Gil Shuster gets the credit for this one!
Avatar Sat. 4/26/14 7:06pm Whooda:

Listening to the live Barmer Boys with muted vintage Batman on TV with Liberace as guest victim. Haha
Avatar Sat. 4/26/14 7:08pm Whooda:

My mistake, I think Liberace is the guest *villian* It's hard to tell with Liberace and Robin seeming so friendly with each other.
Avatar Sat. 4/26/14 7:11pm Whooda:

Ok, should probably have the sound on the program to properly narrate. Actually Liberace is both the villain AND victim do to evil twin scenario. Batman got so complicated sometimes.
Avatar    Sat. 4/26/14 7:14pm Guido from Cologne:

The Barmer Boys kept me awake.
But i definitely have to go.
Will have the remainder "for breakfast".
Avatar Sat. 4/26/14 7:21pm Whooda:

Ok, now harem dancers in silk imitating Shiva, finally Batman and Barmer Boys end on the same note.
Avatar Sat. 4/26/14 7:22pm texas scott:

Whooda,thanks for the visual.
Avatar Sat. 4/26/14 7:26pm Whooda:

@texas scott now that I've heard Sufi influence paired with the accordion, I think I've heard everything.
  Sat. 4/26/14 7:40pm Mr. Barry Gurdjieff II:

has anybody seen HPLDude888 lately?
Avatar Sat. 4/26/14 7:52pm Whooda:

Hello PPLDude888 where you been?
Avatar Sat. 4/26/14 8:04pm KK:

Good eve everyone and thanks Rob for arranging another great live show. Excellent guests tonight. Very cool to be able to hear Barmer Boys' US debut.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 4/26/14 8:05pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I haven't seen comments from PPLDude888 for months. Same for RevolutionRabbitNov63. Coincidence?
Avatar    Sat. 4/26/14 8:10pm Rob Weisberg:

Thanks KK!
Avatar Sat. 4/26/14 8:35pm mariano:

@Ken: you mean LovecraftDude? I was wondering that myself.
Avatar Sat. 4/26/14 8:40pm Whooda:

@mariano and Ken RevRabbit wrote that he had been censored to x-amount of comments per playlist, I thought he was joking until he disappeared immediately thereafter. Am thinking LCD ran afoul of the same heavy hammer of judgement.
Avatar Sat. 4/26/14 8:46pm thunderish' Jay:

besides birds, witch i got at any time outside my windows, thus the connection ... i really like washing machine noises - oh that grumpy bass farting in the kitchen .. WFMU! (not trying to be funny just unclouding some past airwaves bit of a sticky trend im gladly gone)
Avatar Sat. 4/26/14 8:47pm mariano:

@Whooda: hmm. I guess I'm out of the loop. Guess I should watch how much I comment!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 4/26/14 8:57pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Whooda - Thanks for the info. I wish those guys success in their future endeavors.
Avatar Sat. 4/26/14 8:58pm Whooda:

@Ken you know neither one of those guys could possibly stay away from FMU. They haven't gone anywhere.
Avatar Sat. 4/26/14 8:59pm Rectitude:

Cool show this week,,, thank¨s rob
Avatar Sat. 4/26/14 9:00pm Whooda:
