    Hybrid Jazz - with Creole Joe Sample & Amjad Ali Khan!

    in Music

    You thought that you !might have heard EVERYTHING - oh, no - you DINT!  Wait until you hear our guests in the second and third hour of the show on 9/12!
    "Creole" Joe Sample has given us decades of Jazz - starting with the Jazz Crusaders in the 60's.  The last time Joe visited "Hybrid Jazz", he was very excited about heading into production with a dream that he has had for a long time.  And that is to record what he heard as a young boy...the delicious mix of French and African and other slowly stirred-in ethnicities that make up the hybrid stew of Creole.  Zydeco music!  Now, "Creole Joe Band" is out, surprising and delighting the fans who didn't see this coming - and the stellar band promoting the CD is heading to a city near us - and maybe YOU!
    Hear about the amazing journey that Joe is taking with Ray Parker, Jr. and C.J. Chenier - whose roots, via legendary Dad, Clifton, define the world that was Joe Sample's childhood.
    After Joe's relatively short visit (he's playing the Blue Note this week!), we'll get to know the Sorad Master, Amjad Ali Khan!  One of the most highly respected artists in his native India, the most wonderful Amjad has been traveling with his sons - to introduce ragas to an audience that has never heard them.  Amjad relishes this!  There is much to say about this man and his career - which has inspired two books - and has been so rich in honor and musicianship - that Amjad was given India's second highest civilian award, the Padma Vibhashan.  Maestro Khan is part of a noble lineage that has seen generations of musicians - but his classically trained gift was perceived as extraordinary at a young age.  A chance to speak with the most noteworthy Sarod authority in the world is truly an honor!  You'll hear about the Khans' tour and hear inspiring music.
    Join us at one p.m. on 9/12!

    Voices of Haiti

    in Culture

    Miss Zazou G. Pierre, aslo known as Zazou, is originally from St-Marc, Haiti. A poet based out in Florida, the young Haitian-American's dynamic and yet distinct voice speaks deeply into anyone's soul; her poetry without a doubt speaks for Haiti itself.  

    "When I was younger..." She writes on her Facebook Status,  "...I used to lose myself inside of books. That way, I didn't have to face the world...Thanks to this beautiful piece of literature, I have found enough solace and reinforcement to be functional in my own world. Books will always be my first love." 

    Please, take a listen, to one of the young artistic voices of Haiti.

    Ayiti, Yon Nouvèl Espwa.

    in Culture

    Thoughts and views on where Haiti and Haitians are headed today. Is there any hope for Haiti or Haitians? If yes, where does it lie? As young Haitians living abroad, we have watched Haiti over the years worsen as a nation. Instability and Insecurity are not the main or only problems of Haiti. The Haitian man or the Haitian woman in society has a role to play, but It seems as if Haitians themselves have lost any hope in Haiti. Take a listen to what we discuss as Haitians, and as we ask pertinent questions on who we are, where we are going and where our hope lies.
