Show Notes


Woody Daigle and the Cajun Five: "La Chanson de Mardi Gras"

Bat Makumba: "Trabalha"

Mardi-Gras is of course a relic of the French and Spanish occupation; but I judge that the religious feature has been pretty well knocked out of it now.
Mark Twain

Music from Brazil, the Caribbean, the USA, and other locales with that Carnival spirit. Plus an interview with members of Bat Makumba, who blast into Olympia Feb. 27 and have released a great self-titled CD. Jockamo fee nané!
