Hadar Noiberg + 'Ndiaz w/ Bill Cole + Barou/Pellen Duo

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments

L-R: 'Ndiaz, Sylvain Barou & Ronan Pellen (at the Shrine in NY, May 18, 2011), Bill Cole, Hadar Noiberg

Three genre-bending live sessions tonight: First, the gifted flutist Hadar Noiberg (a member of powerhouse Yemen Blues who play Central Park Summerstage July 31) steps out with her own group. Her trio, which just released an excellent debut cd Journey Back Home, blends jazz / improv with Afro-Cuban, Middle Eastern and other global influences.

Then, another exemplary multi-genre band, 'Ndiaz, visited from Britanny in Western France to play the festive annual Breton-style Fest-Noz ("night party") at Connolly's, 121 W 45th St. on May 21, 2011 - where they collaborated with Bill Cole, expert in international - especially Asian - double reed instruments. Also visiting for the Fest Noz were two of Britanny's most in-demand acoustic musicians, Sylvain Barou and Ronan Pellen - both of whom in addition to mastering Breton traditions blend those traditions with jazz and other forms, and also play Irish music, Indian music and lots more.

Big thanks to our illustrious engineers Chris Stubbs and Ernie Indradat and assistant Alon Namdar.

Thought I'd start with something cathartic since we didn't all dissolve into thin air today!
  Sat. 5/21/11 6:11pm Richard from Venezuela:

Here is raining. Good music to make company with this weather. Greetings Rob and all the listeners.
  Sat. 5/21/11 6:14pm Your DJ:

Greetings Richard - We've had a lot of rain here too and there's supposed to be more to come - but it's kind of sunny now and VERY hot here in Studio B!

Great music from Hadar & trio for an after-the-end-of-the-world celebration. Weather: Sunny & warm today with rain on the radar about to move in.

mmmm, just woken up to an overcast warm day...this music is perfect, even if it is 'Evening Breeze'!
  Sat. 5/21/11 6:55pm Your DJ:

It's starting to look a bit more overcast here in Jersey City too Julian, just to continue the weather updates... fortunately no National Weather Service Announcements have come in so far tonight - the bane of our existence here at FMU!
