Latin Roots

Latin Roots (58)

David Dye Latin Roots is a bi-weekly series on the World Cafe program, hosted by David Dye, and made possible by the Wyncote Foundation. In this new series, David Dye explores the vast variety of music from Spanish-speaking countries and people. From the standards like cumbia, mambo and son to Latin rock and even reggaeton, we'll hear it all.

The series airs every other Thursday during the second hour of the World Cafe program, and will delve into the musical styles and genres of Spanish influence with a rotating series of guests. With each segment, David Dye and his guest will explore two related songs, current and old, and discuss their unique characteristics, how they relate and where they fit into the spectrum of Latin music.

Formed from the ashes of the legendary Britpop band Oasis, London-based rockers Beady Eye have been turning heads with their debut release "Different Gear, Still Speeding".

From hipsters to housewives, there is something universally appealing about The Low Anthem's traditionally rooted yet innovative style.

Once an art and design student but always a musician, Chris Bathgate first found his calling in music at the ripe old age of 16.

Famous for his front man ventures with the wildly different Ima Robot (dancey punk rock) and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes (communal folk of the best kind), Alexander Ebert is now releasing a solo debut.

Playing a brand of neo-psychedelia that brings to mind images of anyone from The Velvet Underground to The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Texas-bred The Black Angels are one of the more interesting and authentic acts in today’s music scene.

Today on World Cafe is one of XPN's Artist(s) to watch for July! Cults had a bit of a fairy tale beginning, and their quick rise speaks volumes about the allure of their music.

On his most recent release "Broken Record", Lloyd Cole (formerly of Lloyd Cole and the Commotions) offers a healthy dose of gentle, country-soaked tunes.

With the release of his new self-titled album, legendary guitarist Dennis Coffey proves that sometimes it is indeed worth the wait.
