Global feast pt 1

May 27th, 2012

If you visited our SOB radio facebook page lately, one couldn’t but notice the unique character of the postings. The lady in charge is our dear friend/ partner & rather inspirational writer ( Novel, Fiction ) Orit Wohlfeiler. Orit has been exploring authentic global music for some time now, fascinated by forgotten cultures and melodies, as she exposes us to extremely unique foreign tastings, bringing some added value to our off the wall 24/7 stream. You could listen to some guttural traditional chanting by the Inuit people, to magical gutsy singing of the gypsies, or even some full of feeling and soul Japanese funk for those of you that might have thought those people were too technical. We have thought it would be a great idea to enrich the daily servings with this new section we have named “Global Feast”. This time we want to share with you an authentic demonstration of Tuvan Throat Singing, of a love song. Got to watch this one.

The new Andalusian orchestra

November 20th, 2010

The New Andalusian Orchestra is the successor of the previous Israeli Andalusian Orchestra which had been terminated in February 2009 due to the dismissal of all musicians and workers, most of whom refused to be dissuaded and therefore continued to hold rehearsals and concerts in a steadfast struggle for government recognition and public funding.

This struggle was met with success when the Israeli Ministry of Culture granted the orchestra recognition on February 28, 2010. This was accompanied by the decision to retroactively fund the orchestra for their activities in 2009 and to veto the Ashdod Municipality’s petition to transfer these funds to their service.

Most of the musicians play from sheet music on classical western instruments- Violin, Viola, Cello, Contrabass and Oboe. These are accompanied by a traditional ensemble of classic eastern instruments- oud, Kamanja (knee violin), Kanoun, Ney, Darbuka and tar all of whom play without sheet music, through the knowledge that has been passed on to them from hundreds of generations.

In a week or so we`ll bring to you a filmed general rehersal that took place before a special event in the memory of Joe Amar. This rehearsal was filmed with a consumer videocam using the camera`s mic only.


Tinariwen

March 28th, 2010

Tinariwen is one of my favorite bands, a mixture of Touareg poetry and song to the radical chaabi protest music of Moroccan groups like Nass El Ghiwane and Jil Jilala, and the Algerian pop rai to western rock and pop artists like Elvis Presley, Led Zeppelin, Carlos Santana, Jimmy Hendrix and Bob Marley. They sound to me like The talking heads Remain in light masterpiece album with desert Algerian rai. This is another Vincent Moon masterpiece that I have found on his site

Throw down your heart

February 3rd, 2010

Bela Fleck is America`s most famous Banjo player. He did what Ry Cooder did with the uncles from Cuba, but in Africa with his ‘Throw down your heart’ unique contemporary world music venture . This wonderful project is following the roots of the Banjo, all the way to the wild and fascinating land of Africa and to be more specific, Uganda, Tanzania, the Gambia and Mali. The views are wild and the music and collaboration is magical. As Bela tries to explain it, when you get to meet a new musician, discover a new instrument, and playing together is spontaneous, inspiring and exiting, it`s like being a kid in a toy store. Bela has received two Grammy awards for Best Contemporary World Music Album & Best Pop Instrumental Performance.The project is titled ‘Throw down your heart’ as you can visit the funky flash site and look at the photos, listen to sounds, and watch a trailer of the movie. For info about Part 2 that has just been released and his Amazing African musicians tour go to our news section. Listen to  Afel_Bocoum
