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!

New Orleans native and historical researcher, Barbara Trevigne, will share with us some least known aspects about African American history in New Orleans. A descendant of New Orleans' Free People of Color population, Trevigne will discuss her work on the legendary "Vooddo Queen", Marie Laveau.
Oonya Kempadoo’s moving third novel, All Decent Animals, looks at the personal and aesthetic choices of a multifaceted cast of characters on the Caribbean island of Trinidad—a country still developing economically but rich culturally, aiming at “world-class” status amid its poor island cousins. It is a novel about relationships, examined through the distinct rhythms of the city of Port of Spain.
Loyalties, love, conflicting cultures, and creativity come into play as Ata, a young woman working in carnival design but curious about writing, and her European boyfriend, Pierre, negotiate the care of their friend Fraser, a closeted gay man dying from AIDS. The contradictory Trinidadian setting becomes a parallel character to Fraser’s Cambridge-derived artistic sensibility and an antagonist to Ata’s creative journey.
Oonya Kempadoo was born in England to Guyanese parents. She has lived in Europe and on various islands in the Caribbean. Her first novel, Buxton Spice, was published in 1998 to great acclaim. Her second novel, Tide Running, won the prestigious Casa de las Americas Literary Prize for best English or Creole novel. Kempadoo lives in St. George’s, Grenada.
Marie Laveau and the Gullah Geechee
What is Pan African tradition in the Diaspora? Come learn Marie Laveau and the Gullah Geechee
The New Orleans style of voodoo derives from the cultures of Benin’s Dahomey Empire, the Yoruba and the Akan. It is an Afro-creole tradition. Creole is a Portuguese word meaning “home born”. It does not mean people of a lighter skin tone. Therefore Afro-creole refers to the Afrakans born into the system of slavery. Because of this unique blend, New Orleans style of voodoo is better termed Gri Gri.
The Gri Gri tradition has a long history of female leaders. Marie Laveau, a “mulatto” immigrant from Haiti, is the most famous priestess of this tradition.
Gullah Geechee Nation
Another culture with a unique blend is the Gullah Geechee Nation. Geechee culture is a blend of Igbo, Fula, Mende and other Akan ethnic groups. They were kidnapped and imprisoned on the island of Gullah off the coast of the Carolinas and exploited for their agricultural knowledge to cultivate rice and other cash crops.
The Gullah Geechee culture was born from the efforts of these Afrakans to remember and relive their traditions. The word Geechee is derived from the Ogeechee River in Savanah Georgia.
