Join Rob and illustrious co-host / tech guru Irene Trudel at Barbes, the music-lover's haven at 9th St and 6th Ave in Park Slope, Brooklyn for another jam-packed night of live music. Tonight's stellar lineup proves once again that when it comes to seeing and hearing amazing music from around the world, there's no better place than right here in NYC:

- Joel Forrester, the prolific composer (1600+ tunes including the theme to public radio's Fresh Air) and co-founder of the renowned twisted jazz outfit Microscopic Septet, opens the show on the domestic front, with a solo piano set

- We move on to India, as Brooklyn Raga Massive mainstays shuffle over from their weekly Wednesday sessions at Art Cafe in Prospect Heights for a special Park Slope showcase: Camilia Celin (sarod), Arun Ramamurthy (violin), Abhik Mukherjee (sitar), and Ehren Hanson (tabla).

- Then we open the cross-cultural floodgates as Brandon Terzic's Xalam Project blends sounds of the Islamic World, West Africa, the Balkans and beyond with downtown jazz improv, rock and lots more.

- And to put the cherry on top, special guests all the way from Mexico - but of course playing East European music! La Internacional Sonora Balkanera from Mexico, creators of the Balkanazo Tropical sound, close the show with a bang (plus they'll play another set off-air after the broadcast).

Join us at Barbes or via the airwaves for three solid hours of music. And if you do make it to Barbes, if the great music isn't enough, we'll be giving away free FMU swag too!

Good to hear that the connection is coming in well tonight. One of the remotes some months ago was fraught with egregious technical errors.

Thanks Ken, yes, so far so good!
Avatar Sat. 9/13/14 6:47pm Billy Jam:

it sounds crystal clear - perfect signal/broadcast…….I love remotes - doing them myself and/or listening to others doing them……WFMU is the best….and the busiest - also happening tonight (starting at 8pm) is the show at Monty Hall (WFMU building, ground floor concert hall) with People Like Us along with M.C. Schmidt (Matmos) & Jason Willett - 8pm showtime
