Upcoming events:

Saturday, October 1st, 6pm - 9pm: Field Recording Twofer: Ian Brennan (Grammy-nominated Zomba Prison Project, Khmer Rouge Survivors and more) + Rob's recordings of Merasi Musicians of Rajasthan

We kick off by meeting Ian Brennan, who started out as a rock writer and producer but really has gotten the itch for far-flung field recording, especially in places where people are living or have lived under very challenging circumstances. His first of two recently released Zomba Prison Project albums, recorded at a maximum security a prison in Malawi, is nominated for a Grammy. (He already has one Grammy to his name for producing Tinariwen's Tassili LP.) He also has a new album out of recordings by artists who survived the Khmer Rouge's purge of artists, They Will Kill You If You Cry. He's released albums recorded with artists in war-torn South Sudan and much more. And he has new book - How Music Dies (or Lives): Field Recording and the Battle for Democracy in the Arts. Ian will talk about the book and his mission to share unheard music in a free event at the New School's music building Thursday evening October 6th and on our show this week.

Later: In early 2014 Rob met a poor but talented and determined community of Merasi minority musicians in the Thar desert region of Rajasthan, India. Now some of the finest musicians from that community, the Merasi Master Musicians of Rajasthan, are touring North America, with area shows October 6th and 7th at Baryshnikov Arts Center plus a very special appearance to open our third annual HONK NYC! concert spectacle Thursday October 13th at WFMU's Monty Hall. Rob field-recorded a session with musicians from the community in Rajasthan and we'll hear it on tonight's show.
