Vasilis Kostas: The Soul of Epirus: Music From Northwestern Greece

Vasilis Kostas, originally from Epirus, Greece, is a standout player of the laouto - lute. His collaborative album with clarinet virtuoso Petroloukas Halkias, The Soul of Epirus, received great reviews. He also explores Greek traditions in Boston-based Pharos Ensemble, and channels his other musical love, jazz, as a member of Global Messengers, the multicultural outfit led by pianist Danilo Pérez. Tune in to hear - and hear about - the music. Plus Vasilis spins a guest-DJ set!

Here's the album The Soul of Epirus by Vasilis Kostas and Petroloukas Halkias: https://thesoulofepirus.bandcamp.com/album/the-soul-of-epirus/

    Immigration Equality is the leading LGBTQ immigrant rights organization in the country. It provide s advice and legal services to thousands of LGBTQ and HIV-positive immigrants seeking refuge, fair treatment, and freedom in the United States.

    Hola Rob. Just back from a protest.
    Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm chresti:

    Hi TDK60, how did it go?
    Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Rob W:

    For the first time I can ever remember we were able to join a protest here in Hoboken just by stepping out our door. I can't remember a significant protest march about a national issue in Hoboken, certainly not in our neighborhood. That tells us the significance of this moment, the possibility that this could be a real time of change - it gives me goosebumps thinking about it to be honest.
    Avatar 6:39pm TDK60:

    Very Good. A few oldsters like me but mainly young adults, mainly Latino and Black, thru Washington Heights. I'm tired but glad! No trouble from the cops. As soon as we stepped off to march we got /drenched/ for about 5 minutes. But that helped us feel cool later when the Sun came back.

    Glad to hear that it went well and the weather was not bad.

    Chresti, white folks like me were asked to ring the perimeter to show the cops we were there; they'd have to get us first.

    Rob, These jazz collabs are just great. I could listen all night, but I know well that this bus visits many neighborhoods on its way.

    TDK60, you are brave.

    Hi all! Great sounds!

    I wish every protest was positive but I saw this eye-opening news about the continued negative power of social media: www.nbcnews.com...
    The part where they declare victory because the "buses of antifa" never showed up is just... wow.

      7:06pm JakeGould:

    @chresti: Just a late response to this… “Ah, sounds like kids having fun, maybe..” 100% utterly no. There are definitely people in the WFMU audience who complain and harass DJs for saying anything remotely political. In the case of the last show there were exactly two people persistently don’t that.

    The reason I feel the need to clear that up is stuff like that is never “kids” just goofing around. It is a real listener being really entitled.

    Now, back to the show.

      7:31pm JakeGould:

    @chresti: I have no energy for chat board gossip nonsense and theories, but I do know what I know and I know these people are not kids. I am saying this because your attitude might make you a target for some very well known WFMU comment board trolls. Please don’t feed them.

    this is beautiful, Rob -- THANK-YOU!!!
      7:35pm JakeGould:

    @TDK60: I told the protestors at the march you went to and they went out of their way to avoid any Jim Morrison discussion to avoid any issues.

    Seriously, happy you went out there to see things for yourself. Are there still public garbage cans out on the street near you and the march area?

    They removed garbage cans in Brooklyn as deep as Gravesend I believe. Like anyone would go out there to riot for any reason.
    Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm chresti:

    Haha. Jake, I cannot comment on that, I wasn't there, but generally I ignore trolls.
    Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm chresti:

    Haha @ TDK60
    Avatar 7:37pm TDK60:

    Jake, I didn't think notice that. This was a peaceful march, its most daring thing was walking in the street but the cops didn't care, in this specific case.
      7:43pm JakeGould:

    @TDK60: Cool. Thing to keep in mind… In the great scheme of things, as each day passes and each peaceful protest happens the “violence” narrative fades into the background.

    Avatar 7:51pm slugluv1313:

    @ TDK60 -- weird thing about The Doors is how a lot of the kids who do know about them totally worship them (thinking of all those IG Doors pages!) . . . hell, even back in the late 70s, early 80s -- Doors tribute bands like Crystal Ship, etc.
    Avatar 7:53pm TDK60:

    Slug: Doorsheads? Like Deadheads? I saw a Doors cover band once and it was funny to me (having seen the real thing). The singer acted real affected and moody onstage /and off/. Haha!

    Chresti, that's funny. I have a pal who's a Dead fan. He saw a Dead cover band that recreates specific Dead concerts. They even do the same onstage banter in between songs. My word.
    Avatar 8:01pm slugluv1313:

    @ TDK60 -- hahaha! the kids who were "into" Crystal Ship were generally too young to have seen the real thing!
    never saw them myself, but the ex's younger brother did, and he said the same thing -- the lead singer was totally affected, drinking "whiskey" (black tea!) straight out of a bottle, etc.
    Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm chresti:

    That's crazy, TDK60, like a reenactment?
    Avatar 8:05pm TDK60:

    Slugluv1313- When I saw the Doors the singer was well-behaved, disciplined, excellent. True! / Chresti: Yes! To me, that's absurd. (Public disclosure> I'm not anti-Dead, nor a Deadhead. I like them alright.)
    Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm Franco Twinkie:

    I saw The Doors open for Frank Zappa about a year after Jim Morrison kicked off and at one point Ray Manzarek suggested that Jim was still out there causing trouble, We just thought he was a delusional nut. I mean really, has he shown up yet?

    Hi Franco, musta been some of that famous hippy mystical stuff with Ray M. Heh..

    Tigran Hamasyan is awesome. His new album will be released in July, I think. I've already pre-ordered it.
    He also did a live stream from his home a week or so ago.

    TDK,of course! I saw their baptism of fire when they opened for Public Image at the Olympic Auditorium. Their first show outside East L.A.

    Los Lobos tours a LOT in California, pre COVID anyway.

    I think there were two Doors albums after Morrison. I've never heard them. I think the remaining guys split the vocals?
    Avatar 8:56pm Bas NL:

    Thanks Rob & Vasilis! Great show!
    Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm McGroovey:

    I just realized my Doors post was sitting in the little box unposted since whoever it was mentioned the Doors.

    Great show,, Rob!
    Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm McGroovey:

    And it turns out I have those two post-Morrison Doors albums, but I've never listened to them.

    The struggle is real.
