Good evening, Tamar and all!
  7:03pm chresti:

Hi Tamar! I’m not nearly there, not even close!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm WR:

Even if we are not there yet we are here.
  Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Tamar:

Hello, James, and chresti, and WR, and all! Welcome and let's see where we wander.
  7:27pm wendy del formaggio:

Hi Tamar! I’m more or less there.
  Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Tamar:

Hi Wendy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm listener james from westwood:

Oh, very nice after Bjork!
  7:36pm rich:

hello tamar, you are there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm doctorjazz:

I'm here, I'm there, I'm everywhere, so beware!
  7:37pm chresti:

My favorite Cave song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Summer and Michael and Sylvia:

Hi, Tamar! Just getting home and tuning in!
Avatar 7:41pm slugluv1313:

greetings, Tamar! Everyone!
oh bummer -- i missed Nick Cave :(
  Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Tamar:

Hi doctorjazz, and Rich and Summer and Michael and Sylvia and slugluv!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm WR:

This Victor Brady is amazing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Scott67:

G'day Tamar & Travellers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm doctorjazz:

Terrific set!
  Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Tamar:

G'day Scott67!
  8:43pm wendy del formaggio:

Your sets are making my evening, Tamar!
  Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Tamar:

Thanks Wendy, and doctorjazz! Kinda mixed up the order I had in mind just there, but . . .
Avatar 8:48pm slugluv1313:

ahhhhh Awa Poulo and now Nahawa Doumbia . . . so beautiful
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Alex In Illinois:

This is the first time I have heard this show. Excellent sets!
  Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Tamar:

Welcome, Alex, and thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm northguineahills:

If you want a fun movie to watch, if you're into music, feminism, and the Yorame indigneous community in northern Sinoloa (Mexico), Corazon de Mezquite (heart of corarazon) is a good film. Found it on HBO max last weekend. It's about a girl who wants to learn to play the arpa jarocha (native harp), but only men are traditionally allowed to play it. Recommended.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm northguineahills:

oops. the title is heart of the Mexquite, can't multi-task
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Alex In Illinois:

Wow! A real photograph record! I was kind of enjoying the skip
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm WR:

NGH, sounds like interesting movie. Will watch out for it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:08pm northguineahills:

OK, that Kronos Quartet track was ironic, considering my mention of a Sinoalonse film.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm northguineahills:

Until the 2000s, indigenous languages in Mexico were forbidden to be taught, and many are close to being lost. Mexico, US, and Canada have a lot in common.
  Swag For Life Member 9:11pm Tamar:

Kismet, ngh.
  Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Tamar:

I think only Paraguy among the Americas actually has a state-promoted indigenous language.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Tamar and where-dos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20pm northguineahills:

@Tamar: Paraguay had a mandated state policy in the 19th c that all citizens, no matter their origion, native or European, must inter-marry. They are the outlier in the Americas. That said, Paraguay was a curious place back then. "Let's go to war w/ Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay!" That will end well.
  Swag For Life Member 9:20pm Tamar:

Howdy, Ken From Hyde Park!
Avatar 9:20pm slugluv1313:

Trash <3 <3 <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20pm WR:

Is this Dolls from the first album or another recording? Sounds different than I remember.
Avatar 9:21pm slugluv1313:

first LP, but could be an alternate take -- ??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm northguineahills:

(spoiler, they lost nearly 40% of their population and nearly half their land).
  Swag For Life Member 9:22pm Tamar:

Yep, 1st LP, on LP.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm doctorjazz:

Like this Rokes cover (always liked this song)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm WR:

NGH, I was amazed when I went to the Mexico City equivilant to the New York Natural History Museum. The first floor the expected early civilization big stone stuff. Then when I got to the second floor, all dedicated to the many indigenous cultures. Until then I had no clue there are so many and many with some surviving culture and tradition. I don't know about the state of the indigenous languages, but probably most are in the "let's try to document what we can before it's totally gone" stage.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm northguineahills:

@WR: Been to that museum. District Federal (Mexico City) and Nuevo Leon (Monterrey) are much more liberal then the rest of nation. I believe it was 1998 when a federal bill allowed indigenous languages allowed to be taught in schools.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm northguineahills:

and around the corner from the museum, past the cathedral, is an archeological dig of a pre-Aztec temple.
Avatar 9:32pm slugluv1313:

LOVING this Hectorine album -- thanks, Tamar!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm WR:

My visit to Mexico City was about 15 years ago. Went one other time in 91. Didn't bump into the archeological dig. When I was there about 15 years ago for work there was a mix up and I had 3 or 4 days to be a tourist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37pm WR:

slugluv1313, quick search reveals that Hectorine release is on bandcamp
Avatar 9:43pm slugluv1313:

@ WR -- thanks!
yes, DEFINITELY on my list for next Bandcamp Friday :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm northguineahills:

@WR: I believed they started in 2010. It was literally right behind the national cathedral, so , it took a while to get the permits to start the dig.
Avatar 9:47pm slugluv1313:

i think "Blue Sky" was the song that stopped me in my tracks (played here on FMU) -- and she does a killer version of "Song to the Siren" too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm Scott67:

Thanks Tamar, I have enjoyed drifting along with the delightful flow of your show.
  Swag For Life Member 9:55pm Tamar:

Thanks for listening, all!
Avatar 9:57pm slugluv1313:

beautiful show, Tamar -- thanks so much!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks, Tamar. Will try to catch up again Friday!
  9:57pm sea bass:

thanks tamar
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm WR:

Avatar 10:00pm still b/p:

Veddy veddy nice selections for this evening's listening. Thank you.
