Listen to the groovy first track Snap your fingers and flip your hair to track 7 Drag the whole thing down to your world. Yet another awesome find at Thai-Cam Video on Foster Road in Portland, Oregon. (See below for several others.)
I've had a long, busy week at work and now I just want to (a) catch up on Project Runway All Stars and then (b) fall asleep reading more of Sheng Keyi's Northern Girls, so please forgive the lack of rambling on my part this evening. Do you really need me to tell you how great this is when you can listen to the samples above? I'll be back when I'm rested up.
Soon after I moved to New York City in 1997 I began to notice that bodegas run by people from around the world sometimes stocked CDs and DVDs of music and film from the countries they had come from.
The music I've collected from these bodegas can almost never be found in the "World Music" sections of the few remaining places to buy CDs in the U.S.; nor, for that matter on iTunes (or cheapo MP3 sites like Soundike).
If you are an artist or publisher and do not want your music here, just let me know and I'll remove it.
