During the Apartheid years, creative music flourished in the expatriate communities
South Africa has a rich history of jazz, disrupted but ultimately unstiffled by the years of Apartheid, during which many of the country's top creative musicians were forced into exile, becoming cultural ambassadors to the rest of the world. On today's program we will hear selections from Abdullah Ibrahim, Chris McGregor, Johnny Dyani, Bheki Mseleku, and others.  Guest host: Andy Hosch of Africa O-Yé! and A Different Nature. ///  And remember, it's KBOO's winter membership drive, so please call in with your support!

OU with Amy Denio LIVE on KBOO

A Jazz World
program date: 
Wed, 10/15/2014

OU is genius. They take you on a Mediterranean joyride of vivacious original compositions with folk sensibility, jazz with fiercely funky rhythms, topped with gorgeously lush vocals, sung in Sardinian, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and English.

Based in Rome, Italy, the three women are Sardinian, the three men pure Romans. Bass drums and piano form the lively rhythm section ~ then trumpet, sax, ukelele, glockenspiel and 6 glorious voices weave themselves over the contagious rhythms.

Amy Denio (rhymes with ‘Ohio’ or ‘gennaio’) is a composer, singer, multi-instrumentalist, audio engineer, international collaborator, and record producer. Her main instruments are voice, accordion, alto saxophone, clarinet, electric guitar, and bass, and she's a budding thereminist. She has played at festivals, churches, schools, prisons and mercury mines throughout East & West Europe and North America, as well as in Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong, India, Brazil, and Argentina.
