Before I go on air, this is the planned running order. Things change and the two “extra” tracks are to be added. The 03h00 repeat has no news which allows me to add a couple of shorties.

Dizzy Mandjeku & Alé Kumá Cuando El Silencio Te Nombra De Palenque À Matongé

 

In the Congolese rumba movement, the guitarist Dizzy Mandjeku http://www.dizzymandjeku.com/ is something of a living legend. He began playing in the 1960s in Rumba bands but most of his career was with Orchestre OK Jazz which he went on to lead.

Alé Kumá, a band from from Colombia a country with deep historical ties with Congo and they have been working directly with Congloese musicians for several years.

Tomorrow in Lecce a small town near the heal of Italy with a population of 95,000 will host the 22nd Notte della taranta and something like 250,000 people will turn up to see a spectacular show. Most of the performers are musicians and dancers from around this area. Go look for the videos of the event – I have a few links on my blog. For the next 30 minutes – some of the music that has been released starting with a big stage filled with about 20 musicians and in the middle, a man plays the spoons.

Most of the music I’m playing from La Notte Della Teranta tonight is from 2010. One band that has really developed an international reputation and will be playing The Proms in London at the end of the month is Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino

Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino Nu te fermare Pizzica indiavolata

 

There is an ensemble of singers who also play in bands from the region and some only seem to do occasional recording and performance – two of the 5 or 6 women singers who appear on the stage are Alessia Tondo, Enza Pagliara – here in the Tranta project with the 2010 musical director, Eluvico Einaudi

 

Alessia Tondo, Enza Pagliara & Ludovico Einaudi Ensemble Mamma La Rondinella Taranta Project

 

Another band who play a key role in forming the whole ensemble are Officina Zoe
