In the meantime, here’s some more details about the show:
From Mexico City : Radio 21 Million
21 million people, 100 thousand taxis, a cold and often wicked politic, and a thriving but oft under-appreciated arts scene, Mexico City is alive and vibrant and emerging into the international creative music conscience. With Radio 21 Million, Mexico City based musician Todd Clouser (A Love Electric, Ropeadope Sur) highlights the creative music happening in his adopted hometown by visiting with its artists. Here, musicians become the programmers as we uncover a bit of Mexico City’s jazz past, its eclectic present, and its promise of a future as Latin America’s creative epicentre.
From the late Mexican piano great Eugenio Toussaint to Venezuelan cult hero, composer Vytas Brenner, Colombia’s new-folk experimentalists Meridian Brothers, to some of Mexico’s most progressive creative music from Brainkiller, Troker and the current voice of Mexico’s piano jazz, Alex Mercado, we explore a bit of what's happening in Mexico city, what has inspired its artists, and what's passing through.
We visit artists Aaron Cruz, a celebrated bassist from Mexico City, and the young guitarist Federico Sanchez, and ask them to share some tracks.
