Rhythm & Jews — 6–8:30PM SLT

I have played music from all over the world in my slot on Radio Riel, and I’ve done shows that hon­or the fes­ti­vals of many cul­tures, from Cin­co de Mayo to Diwali to Eid. But I’ve nev­er done a set that focused on the music of my peo­ple.

For the past week, though, I’ve been observ­ing Passover, and so I thought it would be a good time, for a change, to put togeth­er a show all about my own roots. And so tonight’s Mon­day Night World Music brings you a set of Jew­ish music, Israeli pop, and a few excur­sions to the lands of my ances­tors, East­ern Europe and Moroc­co.

You’ll hear klezmer (like the Klez­mat­ics, from whom I bor­rowed the title of this post), mod­ern inter­pre­ta­tions of Sephardic music (includ­ing Yas­min Levy and Deleon), a few tra­di­tion­al Passover songs, Israeli pop leg­ends like Tea­packs and Ofra Haza, and much more.

So come hang out and shep nach­es with us, tonight from 6–8:30PM SLT. You can join me (Carter) in world at Mad­hu’s Café Indi­en, or lis­ten in on Radio Riel’s main stream. Hope to see you there!
