Proslava ljetnog solsticija u 18h uz Calexico i Miles Davisa
Solsticij je najduži dan u godini, 21.06. kad se sunce najduže zadržava na nebu a noć najkraća. Zalasci su dugi i crveni, a na moru se obično ostaje vani sve do zalaska. Na nađem radiju, proslavljamo ljetni solsticij i to u satima od 18h do 20h, kad je sunce u najdužem padu i na mnogo načina najsnažnije! Sviraće nam Calexico (Live at Roskilde 2000) i Miles Davis (Sketches Of Spain), uz zvuk tako prigodan ljetnjem crvenom zalasku.
Calexico – Live At White Stage, Roskillde 01.07. 2000.
“Calexico and members of Mariachi Luz de Luna travelled roughly 1,000 kilometers the night before our performance at Roskilde in Denmark on July 1, 2000. I am sure we had been up nearly the whole night partying and watching movies on the bus and were fast asleep upon arrival to the festival. When we all woke the next morning there was an unusual somber tone in the air as we began hearing the news and details of the tragedy that occured the night before during Pearl Jam’s set on the main stage. We couldn’t believe it and were all in shock. How could so many people die at one of Europe’s most renown festivals?
Some bands decided to cancel and there was confusion at first whether or not the festival would continue. For a while we were all on hold not knowing what would happen.
It was a very difficult decision, but the promoters of the festival decided to go on as scheduled.
Chan Marshall of Cat Power played before us early that afternoon all by herself on the same stage as us and delivered a very heartfelt and moving set. She tapped into the spirit that everyone in the whole festival grounds was feeling with her soulful voice and minimal accompaniment. After experiencing her set, John Convertino and I decided to begin our set as a two piece (drums and guitar) and play an instrumental meditation in honor of those who had passed away. From there we slowly built up the dynamics of the set and it was clear that even though the crowd was in a state of mourning, they also wanted to celebrate, and so when the surprise guests of Mariachi Luz de Luna walked onstage, the whole crowd lit up. It was an amazing set, one we will never forget.”

Miles Davis – Sketches Of Spain
“Sketches Of Spain” je Miles Davis snimao od novembra 1959 i marta 1960. Ovo muzičko djelo poznato je kao začetnik “trećeg zvuka” koji je povezao jazz i klasičnu muziku, a kao takav predstavlja poveznicu za world music. Set uključuje i drugi stav Concierto de Aranjuez (1939) Joaquin Rodrigo-a i dio baleta El amor brujo (1914–1915) Manuell de Falla-e. Miles Davis snima ovaj album uz aranžera i kompozitora Gil Evansa dok se muzika naslanja na špansku folk tradiciju.
