Revolutionary Radio Episode 5 Mon, 2012-03-05 13:25

Plenty of musical madness in the air this month. We?ve started a regular Rebetiko Session on Monday nights in the SOAS Bar. On 14-18 March we?re taking the SOAS Ceilidh Band on tour to Turkey ? St Patrick?s Night in Istanbul ? at the same time as one of our SOAS Ceilidh Band colleagues is organising a Paddy?s Night gig in Ramallah. And in September we might be doing a “Ceilidh beyond Borders” thing in Venice. Watch this space.

And meanwhile, on with the vinyl ! Cultural anthropologists, please note ? “thickness of description” is this week?s watchword?
