Music Night: We no speak Americano

English is the global language of commerce these days, and has dominated cultures in this country and other parts of the world for quite some time. But music is a language without borders, and fighting to survive in places like the backwaters of Louisiana and Acadia in the Maritime Provinces. The theme tonight is music of other languages. Our first guest, Clifton Chenier.

Portland’s Pink Martini is a fabulous ensemble and China Forbes is a most talented songstress in many languages, including Portuguese, Neapolitan accented Italian, and this one in Spanish. You go girl.

  1. Open a bottle of Sangiovese, sit back, and enjoy. This is the song played in the movie “Philadelphia”.

    • One of my daughter’s favorites. She saw them 3 years ago, in all places, Boise, ID and raved about them for months.

    • Now that’s what I’m talking about… beautiful dancing men. The first video has some well dressed men. Okay. I had my share of “eye candy” . Thanks, guys. 🙂

  2. Time for KZOO to sign off. Remember to be cool, but if you can’t be cool, be as cool as you can. I leave you with the musical question…
