Words on World Music

This week on world.beats — Compadres and much more!

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008


What keeps world music a step ahead is the dialogue it encourages across barriers of language and culture. It leads to innovation and collaboration and … in some instances, to lasting friendships. Compadres are two brothers from different mothers; both exceptional guitarists, united by a unique fusion of Celtic roots and Latino flamenco which they’ve dubbed, ‘Celtino Music’. After a ten year separation Compadres are touring again with an album appropriately titled, Buddy Where You Been? James Keelaghan and Oscar Lopez share the Spotlight on today’s program.  dscf1104-medium.JPG   + LOTS OF NEW VIDEOS: from SA electronic whiz kid, Markus Wormstorm, Ozomatli chasing chickens and complementary Colombians, Aterciopelados!


INSIDE THE BEAT: Brian Tracy, a Canadian–born motivational speaker is quoted as saying, “All successful people are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, goal or purpose.”

In Brian Tracy’s book, Maxime Morin would be worthy of his stage name, DJ Champion, because he had the courage to dream big. We’ll give you a look at his big idea and the final result as we take you Inside The Beat with Champion et ses G-Strings.
