This show at CUNY’s Elebash Hall, 365 Fifth Ave:

Girma Beyene with the Feedel Band, Mon Oct 24th, 7 pm, presented by Live Sounds.

Girma Beyene is one of the most influential arrangers of Ethiopian music from the ‘Golden Era’ of the 1960s and 70s which combined African rhythms with American R & B, soul, funk and big band jazz. Girma was a lyricist, a music writer, arranger, vocalist, an accomplished pianist and bandleader. He made a handful of recordings as a vocalist, but it was as an arranger and pianist that he is most fondly remembered today. He is also the composer of “Muziqawi Silt”, the most covered Ethiopian song ever and Carlos Santana is slated to release a cover of another of his song’s soon. This concert marks a rare opportunity to see Girma Beyene to perform live with the Feedel Band from Washington DC as his band. The Washington region is home to one of the most robust Ethiopian music scenes in the world — possibly second only to Addis Ababa itself. The Feedel Band includes some of its top players including saxophonist Moges Habte, bassist Alemseged Kebede, and keyboardist/bandleader Araya Woldemichael.

This show at Town Hall, 123 West 43rd St:

Diego El Cigala, Sat Oct 22nd, 8 pm.

Diego El Cigala is, quite simply, the most exciting and innovative flamenco singer in the world today. Passionate, profound, and immensely proud of his Spanish gypsy heritage, El Cigala has been called “the Sinatra of flamenco.” His earthy, exultant and richly emotive voice marks him as one of the great singers of the last century. He is also one of those rare crossover artists who has stayed true to his musical heritage yet achieved name recognition with mainstream audiences around the world.

Thanks, Ken. I'm now home (from the hospital/rehab). The rehab put me back a month; they sent me home too early. But I'm better now.

Thanks SeanG! I have to admit, we've gotten to the lazy part, because I'm wrapping up with mostly tracks from the Dylan world music comp From Another World just because I can't help it...
