Latin Roots

Latin Roots (65)

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.

John K. Samson, known for his deeply eloquent lyrics and tenure as the frontman of Canadian indie rock outfit The Weakerthans, is just now releasing his first solo album.

Often, an artist can be defined by his or her influences.  Woody Guthrie's legacy demands instead that he be remembered for the legendary writers that he influenced.

On his new album Justin Townes Earle aims to prove a few things. Ten songs clocking in just over thirty minutes, "Nothing's Gonna Change the Way You Feel About Me Now" is one of Justin’s finest works to date harnessing his strength as a captivating storyteller.

Electric bluesman Joe Louis Walker is nothing short of a living legend. He was strumming a guitar by the age of eight, and by the age of 16, he was on stage and has released twenty-three ablums over the course of his career.

Named after a French novella by poet Charles Baudelaire, Fanfarlo is a pop outfit hailing from London. With a wide range of instrumentation (mandolin, glockenspiel, musical saw, melodica, sax, clarinet, and the usual drums, bass, and guitar), Fanfarlo have been able to craft some uniquely beguiling and uplifting pop-folk.

February 14, 2014 - This week on Conversations from the World Cafe, Vince Gill and Paul Franklin join host David Dye in the studio. Two of country music’s finest have created a new album, dedicated to two of country’s finest that came before them.
