Canto Obrero: A live concert fundraiser for the Dominican Workers’ Fund hosted by Columbia University in New York, NY in 1975. Featuring the likes of Nueva Cancion pioneers from Argentina, Spain, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic, as well as (casually) Pete Seeger and Phil Ochs. It just happens to be Phil Ochs’ last recorded performance.
Because it’s that kind of day.

Débruit “Cuivrée” (Official Music Video)
Electronic world music that’s been dipped in soul-drenched boogie. Débruit knows no bounds.
(Hat tip to The Soul Electronic for pointing me to lovely the remixes)
Clear A Space / Lake Street Dive
A sweet, soulful blend of jazz-driven licks, Dixieland rhythms, and a super-raw gospel feel. Love this band.
For more Lake Street Dive, check out their near-viral cover of the Jackson 5 classic I Want You Back.
