Miri Ben Ari



One of the most spectacular music artists I've ever heard. She is :

A Guitarist
A Mother
A Nigerian
Internally Beautiful
Yoruban Born
A Singer
A Child of a German Gypsy
Externally Gorgeous
And a magnificent performer.

I sat with her and spoke about music as art, big business being the opposite of that art, her Father, growing up of mixed heritage in Germany, the "N" word, Berlin, Paris, Large crowds versus small crowds, being a mother, and Europe vs the U.S.

Interview coming soon, but her performance is already in rotation. She has a 1 hour special on PBS currently airing. "Ayo in Monte Carlo." Check you local pbs station for more details.

Thanx for listening and supporting The Mundo Lounge on GPB. 88.1 FM (Altanta), streaming online, or on your local GPB station. Saturday nights at 11 til midnight.




Where does your inspiration come from?

I went to Beaufort,SC and went into a quaint bookstore that sold old hard back books that have the old library smell on them. I really like that smell (got pics later) and wanted to take it with me.

I love travel and all its essence. Magazines, books, journals, guides etc. I found a vintage Fodor's Guide to the Caribbean: Bahamas and Bermuda written in 1964!

This is the inspiration for this Saturday's show. The music of the Carribbean. Calypso, Reggae, Dub, Soca, DanceHall, Carneval, a lot of selections past and present.

I definitely will air the voice of Bob Marley. "Is this Love," is a classic and one of my favorites.

Tune in this Saturday and EVERY Satruday night fo THE MUNDO LOUNGE on GPB Live onlinem, on 88.1fm WJSP (Atlanta Local) or on your local GPB Radio Station.

Last day of the month music line up! 053108
