First on tonight's show: Ethnomusicologist and Haitian music expert Gage Averill - Vice-Principal Academic and Dean at the University of Toronto Mississauga (and Society for Ethnomusicology President, and President of Toronto's excellent non-commercial FM station CIUT) - compiled (and wrote extensive liner notes for) the recently released 10 cd / two book box set Alan Lomax in Haiti, documenting the famed field recordist's 1930s recordings for the Library of Congress. Averill joins us for an audio show-and-tell of highlights from the set. He'll do the same in person at Barbes, 376 9th St. in Park Slope on Thursday Feb. 28 as part of a benefit for Haitian relief, along with a live performance by Brooklyn's own Haitian rara street band Djarara and a screening of Jeremy Robins' film about Djarara, The Other Side of the Water.

Later: With his sharp and feisty San Francisco band the Cuban Cowboys - who join us for a live set - El Cuban Cowboy Jorge Navarro (pictured above right) explores his Cuban-American identity through rock, roll and rumba. The Cuban Cowboys' new EP The Devil's Dance was produced by El Maestro, Greg Landau, acclaimed for his work with Susana Baca, Carlos "Patato" Valdez, Maldita Vecindad as well as many of the leading artists on the thriving West Coast alt.Latin scene.

Big thanks to our illustrious engineer Bil Bowen and assistants Alex Yockey and Dave Mambach.
