Sound Tracks | Ozomatli Performs
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Ozomatli Performs
Description:  A glimpse of Ozomatli rehearsing a performance piece called At the Edge of Urban Identity. It's a kind of history of the band, a ballad of Ozomatli, narrated by their friend Josh Kun, who they call our resident smart guy, maybe because when he's not fronting Ozomatli he teaches music journalism at USC in downtown L.A. Segment presented by Sound Tracks: http://www.pbs.org/opb/soundtracks/

Sound Tracks | Piers Faccini Performs
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Piers Faccini Performs
Description:  Accompanied only by some jostling bells, Piers Faccini stands alone in a garden and delivers a kind of ancient chant, part spiritual, part stripped down work song. It promises a new morning, a new life, but in a world where all our words will soon be broken. Like a monk chanting in an old European monastery, Faccini invokes Biblical images of seven days, seven nights, seven years, seven lives.

Sound Tracks | Watch Dengue Fever Perform A Go Go
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Watch Dengue Fever Perform A Go Go
Description:  On stage at The Fillmore in San Francisco, Dengue Fever re-creates the atmosphere of a Phnom Penh nightclub in the '60s. There's a bouncy, innocent excitement to this song, A Go Go. A song the band obviously loves to perform. Reminds us of Smokey Robinson and the Miracles' 1965 hit, Going to a Go-Go, with a wonderful Cambodian twist.

Sound Tracks | Sanctuary - Antibalas | QUICK HITS
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Sanctuary - Antibalas | QUICK HITS
Description:  Sanctuary was first released on the 2007 Antibalas album Security. Its a slow-burner of a tune, in the classic Fela Kuti style: a build-up of rhythm around drums, percussion, and Hammond organ. And then Amayo the lead singer -- begins to preach the words. Where do you find sanctuary in a world that yanks us in multiple directions?

Sound Tracks | Charles Bradley Sings Heartaches and Pain
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Charles Bradley Sings Heartaches and Pain
Description:  Sometimes a song is more than a song. It can be a confession, a cry from the heart, a catharsis. When Charles Bradley sings Heartaches and Pain on stage, it's a classic, old school, soul music performance. There's even a showy James Brown touch, with Bradley carrying the microphone stand on his shoulder as if it were his cross to bear. And hey, we all have our burdens, right?

Sound Tracks | Sharon Jones Sings Ill Still Be True
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Sharon Jones Sings Ill Still Be True
Description:  We at SOUND TRACKS have loved Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings since we first heard their music. They've turned out four quality albums, including last year's I Learned the Hard Way. But to really appreciate the excitement and precision of the band and the brassy, high-spirited personality of Jones, you've got to see them live. Next best thing: watch them on stage in this Quick Hits performance.

Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Dengue Fever on Sister in the Radio
Description:  Long Beach, California is now home to the largest Cambodian immigrant community in the United States in a district known as Little Phnom Penh. Chhom Nimol moved there with her family in 2000 after leaving Thailand. In her new song, Sister in the Radio, Nimol recalls the moment in her childhood exile in Thailand when she realized the sister her family had left behind was still alive.

Sound Tracks | Watch Dengue Fever Perform Uku
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Watch Dengue Fever Perform Uku
Description:  Uku expresses an immigrant's longing for a world left behind. It casts a spell of nostalgia and regret. The windy season makes me think of my village, sings Chhom Nimol. I think of the old people, young people, aunts and uncles. We used to run and play, hide and seek. But now we are far apart. Far apart.

Sound Tracks | Dengue Fever Interview
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Dengue Fever Interview
Description:  Zac Holtzman and Chhom Nimol are a memorable pair, to say the least. But after years of singing and touring together in their distinctive, tight-knit Dengue Fever band, they are clearly relaxed and comfortable in each other's company. Especially backstage at The Fillmore in San Francisco, where SOUND TRACKS reporter Mirissa Neff spoke with them after an ecstatic show they almost missed.

Sound Tracks | Watch Dengue Fever Perform Gendjer Gendjer
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Watch Dengue Fever Perform Gendjer Gendjer
Description:  Dengue Fever performs Gendjer Gendjer in a back hallway at Amoeba Music in San Francisco. According to guitarist Zac Holtzman (who formed the band with his brother, Ethan, the keyboardist), the song was originally written during the Japanese occupation of Indonesia during World World II when food was so scarce that people resorted to eating Gendjer, a weed that grew in rice fields.

Sound Tracks | Seun Kuti Interview
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Seun Kuti Interview
Description:  Seun apologized for being jet-lagged - those Europe to California hauls can wear you out - but he made time to talk with SOUND TRACKS reporter Mirissa Neff before his show at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco.

Sound Tracks | Seun Kuti performs Rise
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Seun Kuti performs Rise
Description:  Rise is the title song on Seun Kuti and Egypt 80's new album. In the Fela tradition of Afrobeat, it's an angry song - protesting against corrupt leaders and corporations exploiting Africa's resources. It's also a big band tour de force, with echoes of James Brown and Miles Davis. Above all, it's a call to rise against injustice.

Sound Tracks | Seun Kuti performs Zombie
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Seun Kuti performs Zombie
Description:  As a tribute to his father, Seun Kuti opens his concert with one of Fela's signature songs, Zombie, a scathing indictment of the Nigerian army for blindly following repressive orders. This is Afrobeat at its most provocative written by a man who repeatedly challenged the military regime and paid the price in countless beatings and arrests.

Sound Tracks | Seun Kutis Sax and Smile
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Seun Kutis Sax and Smile
Description:  We couldn't resist including this video clip of Seun Kuti, just before he took the stage at San Francisco's Regency Ballroom. It's only a moment, but it reveals another side of his personality - smiling, sleepy, a bit shy - right before he becomes a force of nature leading a volcanic band.

Sound Tracks | Abigail Washburn Performs Shotgun Blues
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Abigail Washburn Performs Shotgun Blues
Description:  Never, ever, cross Abigail Washburn. Consider this video your warning. She's playing a Gold Tone cello banjo for this selection, which has a sound that's deep and resonant - and in this context, a little ominous. The central riff has a nasty, bluesy edge, but sounds like it could also come straight out of a Chinese folk tune.

Sound Tracks | Abigail Washburn Performs Piao
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Abigail Washburn Performs Piao
Description:  With Abby, what would never work on paper has a way of coming out natural and swinging, this song being a perfect example. There's simply no one else on the planet who could pull this off. Piao means floating, and Abby sings in Mandarin, This morning I woke up to no big plans, no great ambitions, just floating, floating, floating... It's hard to explain the mix of influences in this song.

Sound Tracks | Abigail Washburn Performs City of Refuge
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Abigail Washburn Performs City of Refuge
Description:  City of Refuge is the title track from Abigail Washburn's latest solo album. Abby sings of taking off to a place where everyone is made new, and many of her songs speak to this need to keep moving, running, reinventing oneself.

Sound Tracks | Interview with Abigail Washburn
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Interview with Abigail Washburn
Description:  As if our debt to China weren't big enough, it turns out we also owe the Asian giant for inspiring Abigail Washburn, a true American original, to become a musician. It's a roundabout story. But you'll get the drift of it in her interview with SOUND TRACKS reporter Arun Rath, plus a sampling of her songs.

Sound Tracks | Sharon Jones Welcomes Charles Bradley
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Sharon Jones Welcomes Charles Bradley
Description:  The Queen of the soul music revival, Sharon Jones, now has a Soul Man, Charles Bradley, to back her up. Quick Hits found them backstage at the start of a tour, hanging out and cheering each other on. Nothing retro about us, sasses Ms. Jones, We're not imitating. When I open my mouth, soul comes out. Charles, too.

Sound Tracks | Charles Bradley Speaks to Quick Hits
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Charles Bradley Speaks to Quick Hits
Description:  How long? shouts Charles Bradley, and it's like an electric shock, and an existential question. For Bradley, it's a question about all the world's woes, but it's also very personal. As Bradley tells SOUND TRACKS reporter Marco Werman in this Quick Hits interview, his moment in the sun has been a long time coming.

Title:  Sound Tracks | Helene Grimaud Interview
Description:  Helene Grimaud is a risk-taker. She may appear ethereal, even fragile, but she has the will of a tiger, or should we say, wolf, the species she has chosen to protect at a sanctuary she founded in 1999 in South Salem, New York, about two hours north of Manhattan. In her Quick Hits interview with SOUND TRACKS, Grimaud describes her love of wolves, overcoming illness, and the magic of performing.

Title:  Sound Tracks | Ozomatli: The Quick Hits Interview
Description:  The guys in Ozomatli are old friends and it's obvious they're still having fun with their hard-charging, polyglot band. Quick Hits reporter Mirissa Neff caught up with them at a rehearsal on tour in San Francisco, where Wil-Dog Abers and Jiro Yamaguchi joined Uli in describing how strange it was to get a call from the Bush-era State Dept..

Title:  Sound Tracks | Ozomatli Performs
Description:  Live from the Fillmore, San Francisco's legendary concert hall, Ozomatli breaks into a rambunctious version of La Gallina (the chicken). With lead vocals by Raul Pachecho and some blistering horns - Asdru Sierra on trumpet and Ulises Bella on saxophone - it's irresistible dance music.
