Jazz 88.3 will honor Black History month by highlighting how African-Americans have created and advanced the art form of Jazz. Each year KSDS chooses a significant aspect of African-American culture and this year’s focus is the Harlem Renaissance. Harlem has inspired countless jazz pieces but also significant literature and art. Listen every weekday, all month long, for a different historical aspect of the cultural mecca of Harlem. The segments can also be visualized at Jazz88.org. A look at Harlem’s history every weekday during Black History Month, only on KSDS, Jazz 88.3. Click here to view all the segments.
Camarada's 2018 season is in full-swing! Up Next: "Calypso Heat" happening Sunday, April 15th at the Mingei (6:30PM). Camarada takes a trip to the Caribbean to explore the music that pulses through the islands. Leonard sings “Jamaica Farewell” and the humorous “Monkey Song”, both made famous by Harry Belafonte. Peter’s parents had those records and their influence can be felt on his original songs “Musica Del Mar” and “Cali Calypso”. The pace slows down and they do a sensitive reading of “Oh Shenandoah” which is a song about a river and water, kind of far from the islands but perhaps related in some metaphysical way. This is bound to be one spectacular show! For further details, or to purchase tickets, click here!
