Hrdza’s new album Neskrotený

“Welcome to Slovakia” they sing on Hit, a track on Hrdza’s new album Neskrotený. It is a thrill of an album using wit, style and excellent musicianship.

Slice Audio – Week 1 Playlist

Last week (15 February 2019) I started a show on Slice Audio streaming on the internet.
Here is the playlist for week 1

Community Podcasters are the new Punks

Three chords and a guitar? Community podcasters have an audio recorder and a determination to have their voices heard. Just like punks in the 1970s who demystified the record industry.

More than 50 women you should hear sing – Part 1

“More than 50 women’s voices you should hear” is a spin off from the imaginary Mediterranean tour. This is the first of probably four posts

Mediterranean Music – Start Here

Almost two years ago, I set out on an imaginary journey around the Mediterranean to explore the music and hear how such diverse cultures and peoples could influence each other and rely on each other for development in modern music. 

Mixcloud Mix Number 3 “Random”

A new mix for the weekend. Some of the tunes connect, some don’t. Overall they are a random selection. There are bands and tunes you have never heard before (honestly worth hearing) and some you’ve forgotten you even knew.

Mediterranean Music – Morocco

The end of the journey and the music of Morocco. The music is real, the trip (as is the grilled fish sitting on a Moroccan beach) is imagined.

Mediterranean Music – Algeria

With the exception of Libya, north Africa has been incredibly rewarding. No less Algeria. 

Mediterranean Music – Tunisia

This is my fantasy journey around the Mediterranean Sea in search of music.

Tunisia – you are outstanding. Read about the musicians, listen to the music.

Mediterranean Music – Libya

Help! I can find hardly any music in Libya. Do you have suggestions?

Mediterranean Music – Egypt

On our fantasy tour of the Mediterranean we arrive in Egypt. The music on this playlist has been a real pleasure to compile. It is full of surprises; traditional, experimental, avant garde, even.

Punk Ha! Ha! – Mixcloud mix 2

My second MixCloud mix. If nothing else punk has having a bloody good time – hence the title of this episode Punk! Ha ha!

My new Mixcloud channel

After much messing about I have signed up to Mixcloud to try it out. Not so many clever mixes, more a playlist. 

This is a Song from Europe part 1 (there may be more) and the first episode on what I call Davy Sims’s World Music Radio.

What do you want to say? First know your audience

My communications mantra hasn’t changed much over the years. I have found it serves me well.

Janez Fajfar re-elected Mayor of Bled

Župan Janez Fajfar has been re-elected mayor of Bled once again. He was standing unopposed. Here is an interview he did for the Firsthand Guide to Bled.

Total Slovenia News – Meet the people

Link to interview in Total Slovenia News

Shankill Mission

I like big ambitious ideas. And this is one I am involved with. The plan is to open a hotel on Belfast’s Shankill Road.

Podcast training

I’m going to be running a podcast training workshop on 22 November at Ormeau Baths in Belfast. The organiser and promoter is View Digital.

Mediterranean Music – Palestine

My imaginary journey around the Mediterranean seeking out music I can share brings me to Palestine – and some of the most interesting music so far.
