Hello my presumably locked-away friends in Britain! This article appeared yesterday in The Guardian. I am the blue-shirted white-haired fellow with the microphone to the right of the other white haired fellow with the microphone (left side in the photo) under the heading “Brazil”. That other is David Dye of World Café, well-known on the left side of the Atlantic for his programs broadcast on U.S. National Public Radio.
It was a nice surprise to appear like this…normally I toil away in obscurity, championing and attempting to divulge musicians and music that not a lot of people are interested in (in spite of the fact that the music is transcendent).
I’m ensconced in a little town in the middle of Bahia, in the sertão, backlands.
