Music for the Masses: Tanto Tango (Audio)

Oct 08, 2023

The fourth and final feature in a month of Sundays celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month brings us to Argentina, where we will bathe ourselves in a swirling pool of tango nuevo, milonga, valseado, and folkloric chamamé. Plus, as a special offer to WGXC listeners during the Fall 2023 Local Music Pledge Drive, there will also be ticket giveaways for an upcoming jazz concert series and more at The Local, a new live music venue in Saugerties.

"Music for the Masses" invites you on an excursion of sound and rhythm. Discover the music of established and emerging artists, both signed and unsigned, on the international music scene. For the avid globe-hopper and armchair traveler alike. You might want to pack a map and a sandwich. Catskill resident "DJ Neva" is an ethnomusicologist, producer, and long-time cultural activist, specializing in music from the entire African continent, as well as the Caribbean and Latin America, the Maghreb and Middle East, and the Roma (Gypsy) diaspora. Formerly the producer of "Continental Drift" on WBAI-FM and New York International on Haitian community station Radio Soleil in NYC. The show is broadcast live from Catskill, NY.
