UPCOMING:

September 30: Sounds of the Subcontinent + Eljuri interview
Known as the Indian Subcontinent, the Asian Subcontinent, or just The Subcontinent, the region encompassing India, Pakistan, Bhutan, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka is rich in many ways, including musically. We’ll visit the region and hear a selection of styles and artists. Remember that you can hear more of this kind of music on KAOS’s The Junglee Hour, Saturdays 4-6pm every week.  Plus, an interview with Ecuador-born singer-songwriter/guitarist Eljuri about her new album and related topics.

October 21: Afro-Cuban Music
The musics of Cuba and Africa are so enmeshed that it can be tough to tell where one ends and the other begins. But who cares? It’s all great music, and we’ll hear Afro-Cuban sounds from both sides of the Atlantic this week. Not coincidentally, today is the birthday of Celia Cruz. Your Afro-Cuban requests welcome, of course: Leave a note on the STG Facebook page, or call during the show at 360-867-5267.

October 28: Halloween / Day of the Dead Music
Music of ghosts, full moons, ancestors, and other things that go bump in the night or illumine the darkness. Your requests welcome, of course: Leave a note on the STG Facebook page, or call during the show at 360-867-5267.
