Megitza Quartet in the Studio
This week on Radio M it's an encore performance by Chicago's Megitza Quartet. The band was the idea of Polish musician Malgorzata "Maggie" Babiarz...and the foursome does a fantastic job of blending Maggie's music of her youth- Polish Highlander singing- with Eastern European folk traditions, American jazz and a good dose of Roma soul. A couple of years ago they stopped by the Jim & Kay Mabie Performance Studio to play some cuts from their first release Boleritza.
Also Ethiopian dance music, Congolese hip hop, psychedelic Peruvian cumbia, music from Goa and much more to get your feet tappin'.
