On this week’s program, we enjoy the music of Ven Pa’ Ca’, a flamenco ensemble based in New Orleans. The recording of this performance took place at Snug Harbor Jazz Bistro with many in the audience, including Teresa Romero Torkanowsky, the woman responsible for bringing Flamenco to New Orleans in the 1960’s. Alongside the music, we have some ceviche with Nick Bazan at Rio Mar.
As you've probably heard, it's WWOZ's mission is to bring New Orleans music to the universe. And judging by the places from which we get pledges, it must be working. These maps show locations from which we've had donations this membership drive.
Of course we do really well in this part of the world:
On the first Wednesday of our Fall 2013 Membership Drive, two visitors to our studio performed songs about WWOZ. The Dukes of Dixieland did "Get Hip to 'OZ" and Alex McMurray did "Phones Will Be Ringing". Check 'em both out!
