iscover artists and bands from across the Americas, the Caribbean,
Africa, Europe, the Pacific Islands, Asia, and the Middle East during
Musicology: Live from the Old Town School of Folk Music. Each
episode, filmed by WYCC’s veteran crew, will feature one culturally and
musically significant artist or group performing live at the 400-seat Maurer Concert Hall
at the Old Town School of Folk Music.
The episodes include 45 minutes of live concert footage along with 10 minutes of
pertinent back story. There is no host or narrator, which gives each artist the opportunity
to tell their own story in their language of choice (with subtitles utilized as necessary) and
provide the historical, cultural, and musical context to better appreciate and understand
their live performance.
Thirteen artists or groups have been selected for the inaugural season of this unique
and unprecedented music series, which will air Fridays at 9 p.m. starting April 19.

Habib Koité & Eric Bibb –
Brothers in Bamako
Friday, April 19 at 9 p.m.
21st-century Malian griot Habib
Koité and new world bluesman
Eric Bibb join the rhythms of
their guitars and voices for some transatlantic blues. Koité’s
ancestral knowledge set to song places him among the
most influential voices of contemporary Africa. Bibb, godson
of Paul Robeson, has established his name in the new
generation of bluesmen without renouncing the legacy
of folk and gospel.
The Creole Choir of Cuba
Friday, April 26 at 9 p.m.
Founded in 1994, The Creole Choir
of Cuba has combined modern
Haitian sounds with music passed
down from their families since the
early 19th century. Although all of the members are native
to Camagüey, Cuba, they are also all descendents of Haitians
enslaved to the Caribbean from West Africa. The Creole
Choir’s joyous sound is a feast for both the ears and eyes.
Hamid Al-Saadi
Friday, May 3 at 9 p.m.
Vocalist Hamid Al-Saadi is the
leading authority on the Iraqi
Maqam tradition and has been
named the main purveyor of
the Maqam in his generation.
The centuries-old tradition is unique to Iraq and is one of
the most sophisticated musical forms in the Arab world. In
2003, UNESCO added Maqam to the Representative List of
the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. This concert
marks Al-Saadi’s U.S. debut performance.
Altan
Friday, May 10 at 9 p.m.
Altan have established themselves as one of the most
important live acts to play traditional Irish music in Ireland
and on the world stage. During their 25+ years of playing
together, this band has created a way to bring the beauty
of traditional music to contemporary audiences with their
heartwarming and dynamic live performances. In 1996,
they were the first Irish band of their kind to be signed by
a major record label.
Future episodes include performances by:
Bajofondo
What began as a collective of Argentine and Uruguayan
artists who combined programming and samples with
acoustic and electric instruments has now evolved into an
eight-member group that liberally adds elements of Latin
American roots music.
Alash
Believing that traditional music must constantly evolve,
the musicians subtly infuse their songs with western
elements while staying true to their Tuvan music, culture,
and heritage. They are masters of both traditional Tuvan
instruments and the art of throat singing.
Oliver Mtukudzi & the Black Spirits
Oliver Mtukudzi is Zimbabwe’s pride and national
treasure. A member of the Kore Kore tribe, he is one
of the most successful African recording artists in North
America. In fact, one of his biggest fans is Grammy-winning
country singer Bonnie Raitt.
Joan Soriano
Born in the rural countryside in the Dominican Republic,
Joan fashioned his first guitar from fishing line and
a discarded metal box. Today, he blends Afro-Dominican’s
sacred traditions with bachata, which he infuses with equal
parts romance and grit.
P’indékuecha
This musical group of the indigenous P’urhépecha
people of the western Mexican state of Michoacán
performs native genres using violin, guitar, bass, and vocals.
First formed in 1999, they have since been recognized as
cultural ambassadors.
Christine Balfa & Balfa Toujours
This traditional Cajun band from Louisiana plays it
straight from the heart, as it has been played in their
Cajun family for hundreds of years. Led by Christine Balfa,
daughter of the late, great Cajun fiddler Dewey Balfa, the band
carries on in the soulful, impassioned Balfa Brothers tradition.
Kaumakaiwa Kanaka’ole
His performances and music seamlessly meld Hawaiian
culture and modern sensibilities by drawing from ancient
‘oli (chant) traditions, modern melodies, and original mele
(songs), in a powerful mix of music that speaks to the soul.
Buika
Born on the Spanish island of Majorca to Ecuato-Guinean
parents and surrounded by the flamenco music found in
the Roma Gypsy neighborhood where she grew up, Buika has
become a spellbinding performer with a powerhouse voice.
Garifuna Collective
In 2007, Andy Palacio & the Garifuna Collective created
one of the most praised world music albums ever
released. The band continues to produce soul-stirring songs
inspired by their unique Afro-Amerindian cultural heritage.

Celebrate Earth Day the Water Way
About 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered by
water—so WYCC PBS Chicago is celebrating Earth Day
(April 22) all month long with programs about the
importance of protecting our water resources, for a
number of vital reasons.
Over one billion people worldwide lack access to
safe drinking water. Water Pressures, airing Monday,
April 1 at 9 p.m. and Saturday, April 6 at 7 p.m.,
documents the partnership between villagers in waterdistressed Rajasthan, India, and students and faculty
from Northwestern University in Evanston as they work
to solve the water crisis in the Thar Desert.
American health workers and community partners
face a relentless cycle of success and failure during
Global Health Frontiers: Foul Water, Fiery Serpent
on Saturday, April 6 at 6 p.m. and Sunday, April 7
at 9 p.m. These dedicated men and women struggle
to confront Guinea worm disease, a disabling parasitic
infection caused by drinking contaminated water and
Global Health Frontiers:
Foul Water, Fiery Serpent
last reported in Ghana and Sudan.
Then, tune in to the first episode of Congo, “The
River That Swallows All Rivers,” on Wednesday, April 10
at 7 p.m. The Congo River, one of Africa’s least explored
regions, is now so wide that animals are unable to cross
it. It is also home to arguably the most primitive fish in
the world. (Two additional episodes of Congo air this
month, on April 17 and April 24.)
Please check the listings for more information on
other programs about conservation.
Learn from Your Environment

budding environmental scientist,
it is important to know how one
environment affects another. From
the big picture (how humans impact
nature) to the details (interactions
between microorganisms), the
City Colleges of Chicago has a
class for you. Make Earth Day 2013
your motivation to learn more
about our planet and the different
environments found on it. Please
