Latin Roots

Latin Roots (67)

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.

This week on Conversations from the World Cafe, David Crosby joins host David Dye in the studio. David Crosby recently released his 4th solo album Croz – it is his first in over 20 years. For the new disc he worked with his son James Raymond, finding a collaboration as sympathetic to his music sensibilities as his work with The Byrds and CSNY. We will talk about the old days, including his first solo album, 1971’s If I Could Only Remember My Name, which came out after the sudden death of his girlfriend Christine Hinton, as well as the new disc. Plus, Graham Nash. Last year Graham Nash published his autobiography Wild Tales: A Rock & Roll Life. It details his amazing music career, from growing up in poor in England, to first finding fame with The Hollies, and then later leaving the UK in 1968 to embrace his artistic connection with David Crosby and Stephen Stills. Nash details his career, including what his longtime collaboration and friendship with Crosby has meant to him. That’s this week on Conversations from the World Cafe!
