It’s time for Radio Riel’s steampunk-flavored show “Gabrielle in Wonderland”! Tune in this afternoon on either Radio Riel’s Main stream or to Radio Riel Steampunk  from 12:30pm – 2:00pm North American Pacific Time to listen.

This month’s program is the third in a series called “Steampunk Music Roots”. After exploring old skool Goth and Industrial and then Cabaret over the last several months, today we delve into music of Eastern Europe and the Middle East. This Eastern flavor of music has been embraced by fans of steampunk and has definitely influenced artists that identify themselves as steampunk.

Upon reflection, I asked myself why this was the case. How and why did this Eastern Flavor become a part of “steampunk music”? Today I will share with you the thoughts and theories on this question from the wonderful folks of the Music for Steampunks community on Facebook.
