Always a strange time of year in the north hemisphere – when people give in to the disappearance of the sun and fully embrace the dark side. To please the festive spirits, here is a non-stop playlist of many delightful horrors! All your favourite monsters stop by for the jam: chupacabra, sasquatch, vampire, zombie, gnome, baba yaga, gremlin, mosquito, non-carbon life form…  Yes, you loveable critters make the underworld a much richer place.

Rockin’ the sanshin ina rubadub stylee

Well this is a pleasant surprise..  Despite an unsettling history of occupation from outside forces, the Okinawa Islands (formerly the Ryukyu Kingdom) in the deep south of Japan are home to an amazing array of tropical musical flavours!  Not only a singular style of folk music (lovin’ that sanshin), but reggae and cumbia and oh my 神!!  Much more!

Also on this week’s program – Arab electro, Nigerian disco, Aussie soul, Incan prog, and who knows what else..

June 21st marks not only the beginning of summer in Canada – it is also our National Aboriginal Day.  In honour of the 20th anniversary of our country’s re-awakening, Wandering Rhythms this week presents an hour of diverse and sublime aboriginal music from Canada (first half) and worldwide (second half).  From traditional drumming to hip hop and many burgeoning scenes in between, these cultures are reclaiming their power and moving into the new age with power and purpose.
