brawl in Hollywood's history--featuring the Peruvian beauty herself, her estranged
husband, two hot-blooded Inca dancers, three private detectives, a male Peruvian

Sounds like a remix of Umi

Heya Dan and individuals.

wow, can't believe I missed the return of Mr. Dan Bodah on the schedule.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 9/21/15 7:05pm Ken From Hyde Park:

This opening track reminds me of the a capella thing our second grade music teacher had us sing: Ta ta ti ti ta. Ti ti ta ta. We would also clap along to it, I think.

how do they learn to do this???
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/21/15 7:07pm Carmichael:

Is this what they call "speaking in tongues"?

Hello Dan, glad to hear you back on the air again
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:08pm Cheri Pi:

I wrongly thought it was an Ali Khan member, 2 for 2 Bodah.
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:10pm Cliff:

Speaking in tongues is what they do in Pentecostal and Charismatic churches. Should be plenty of recordings online if you care to search for them.

that konnakol piece was amazing
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:14pm Dan Bodah:

I will definitely play some speaking in tongues at some point...many weeks of weird vocal arts to come!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 9/21/15 7:15pm Andrew Waterloo:

My ex is/was Pentecostal because her parents were ministers and ran a Pentecostal church. I learned about this speaking in tongues thing the weekend I visited.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 9/21/15 7:16pm Andrew Waterloo:

Afterward I asked why she never warned me. She just shrugged and said "you wouldn't have believed me"
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:16pm Cliff:

Glad to hear that, Dan.....I have a Ph.D. in linguistics (yes, really) and am quite fascinated by glossolalia. :)
  Mon. 9/21/15 7:17pm Mr. Joe Bob McFred:

oh look, its the 19 necks again!

Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:25pm Dan Bodah:

I think it was 15 people
  Mon. 9/21/15 7:26pm Fjolla Hoxha:

This concert was on behalf of the dictator's birthday. The song title means:May you live as old as these lands!

@Fjolla, thanks very much for the information

I hold the same sirname as he, may I not be his cousin!:) Greetings from Prishtina, Kosova! Always tuned to wfmu!!!
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:31pm Cliff:

Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares is one of my favorite albums, just throwing that out there.
  Mon. 9/21/15 7:31pm Liz K.:

Nice surprise to find Dan Bodah is back on every week.
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:31pm ranjit:

so happy to hear a new Dan Bodah vocal show!
  Mon. 9/21/15 7:32pm mary:

I appreciate Meredith Monk, since she's been in the news...seen/heard plenty of MM but people, the Rustavi! And others on this show and elsewhere in the world.
  Mon. 9/21/15 7:33pm Mr. Joe Bob McFred:

I wonder what this translates into?
  Mon. 9/21/15 7:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Glad this program & Dan Bodah are here.
  Mon. 9/21/15 7:35pm mary:

So glad!

All in favor of throat singing, say "ooooeeeeiiiiiooooiiiii"!

First time listening, instant fan of the show. Thanks so much, Dan!

Speakin' in tongues ain't nuthin'. I CURSE in tongues!
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:39pm Dan Bodah:

Thanks for the kind comments everyone. And keep the suggestions coming -- I have lots of stuff on deck for coming weeks but I am always happy to learn about new things.
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:40pm Cliff:

There are some forms of aphasia where the sufferers can only express themselves in curse words and nothing else. Sad but true.
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:45pm ranjit:

Suggestions: some or all of Caroline Shaw's Partita for 8 Voices.

Also Stockhausen's Stimmung, but that's an hour long and doesn't break up into neat pieces!
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:46pm Cliff:

Sheila Chandra?
  Mon. 9/21/15 7:46pm Mr. Joe Bob McFred:

a force of nature... like me!
  Mon. 9/21/15 7:47pm Will:

Are ya gonna play any death or black metal?
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:47pm Cliff:

Nope, wrong guess. But I agree, she is a force of nature
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:48pm Dan Bodah:

@Will, I do have it on my agenda to pick out some black metal for the show, but specific suggestions are welcome.
  Mon. 9/21/15 7:49pm Mr. Joe Bob McFred:

I suggest you yell into the microphone in the strangest voice you can
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:50pm Cliff:

He doesn't need to, they've got all kinds of knobs and doohickeys in the studio to alter the sound of things
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:52pm JakeGould:

@DanBodah: I like this show. In a 1 hour timespan you are waking me up with all of this stuff.
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:52pm dale:

yma to diamanda is a natural segue.
  Mon. 9/21/15 7:53pm Noisy:

One suggestion that immediately sprang to mind was "Parole", it has great glossolalia but I don't know who performed it. Also, Enka is an entire genre of Japanese music well known for its unusual and histrionic vocals.

Thanks for playing Diamanda. I expect we'll hear some Yoko Ono and Sachiko soon, eh?
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:54pm Dan Bodah:

@JakeGould, I feel like an hour really flies by, but I'm trying to pace things so the music has time to settle in.
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:55pm JakeGould:

@DanBodah: Oh, it does fly by… But I think it’s a good pace for those stuff. At least for poor schmoes who don’t know about most of it. Good work!
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:56pm Cliff:

Balinese Kecak would be fun to listen to too....Nurse With Wound and Mr. Bungle have both sampled such sounds
  Mon. 9/21/15 7:56pm Mr. Joe Bob McFred:

i'm a poor schmoe
  Mon. 9/21/15 7:57pm Mr. Joe Bob McFred:

and im proud of it
  Mon. 9/21/15 7:58pm Mr. Joe Bob McFred:

wait... was she like having babies or something?
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:59pm Cliff:

That was excellent, thanks so much Dan!
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 7:59pm Cheri Pi:

Thanks Dan!!
  Mon. 9/21/15 8:00pm Noisy:

Looking forward to the next show!

clicky-staredr i put a spell on you
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/21/15 8:00pm Ike:

Thanks Dan! The show's not long enough but it'll have to do!
Avatar Mon. 9/21/15 8:03pm ranjit:

I misread Cliff's suggestion as "Business Kecak" and now that's something I really want to hear.
