Adventurous spirits journey within and without, connecting with tradition, home, self, and other. This month on the global dance poetic, many new releases that share an adventurous spirit of experimentation and connection. One, special to my heart, from Australia’s Candy Royalle. One, just arrived from Canada’s Rise Ashen, the master of Indigenous electronic collaboration. Another from Canada, a new album from poet Brandon Wint. A collaboration between Canada’s DJ Kwe, Berlin-based radio maker and producer Claudio Wegener, and the women of the BaTonga, Zimbabwe. Fresh vibes coming from Anthony Joseph, Oddisee, the Hidden Jazz Quartet, Rocky Marsiano, and Ibaaku. We’re going to traverse some wild beats, some smooth soul and hip hop and some jazz syncopation, in this eclectic hour - the natural drums and their spirits will guide us.
