Transpacific Sound Paradise returns to its home away from home, Barbes, the cozy music lover's (and beer lover's) paradise swathed in red at 376 9th St, Park Slope, Brooklyn. With special guest co-host / tech guru Irene Trudel.

Tonight's players included a couple of Frenchmen: Yan Yalego, representing the Gallic wing of the global ukelele movement; and veteran pop crooner Thierry Stremler, who among his many musical undertakings recently contributed songwriting to an album by the iconic Francoise Hardy.

To confuse things a bit, Minnesota guitarist Reynold Philipsek plays a few pieces in the French jazz manouche style. Then things take an Eastern European turn with Metrofolk, local purveyors of traditional Hungarian tanchaz (dance-house) music.

Finally it's back to this side of the Atlantic with Pistolera, the charismatic femme-centric Nuyo-Mexican conjunto who close the broadcast with feisty cumbias, rancheras and other good things from south of the border via NYC.

Effusive thanks to: Veronica Liu (board op), Bil Bowen (assistant engineer), Jake Aron (stage hand), Katie Gentile (swag genie) and also to our collaborator on these broadcasts, Olivier Conan of Barbes. And of course, the fabulous Irene Trudel.
