My next radio guest spot on Stanford's KZSU 90.1 FM's "Lunch Special" Show is scheduled for Monday October 4th from Noon - 1 PM. It will air live on KZSU Stanford 90.1 FM and stream live at http://kzsulive.stanford.edu
This time around, I am planning a special tribute to Fairuz (who, at age 75, is releasing a brand new album) and I will be premiering brand new tracks from some of the Arab world's most promising new talents--from Tania Kassis (aka La Soprano du Liban) and Zeid Hamdan (former member of the ultra hip band Soapkills) to Egyptian superstar Tamer Hosny and Tania Saleh (whose vocals and musical arrangements have to be heard to be believed). These budding musicians will blow you away with the innovative, fresh and extremely addicting music that they have been releasing--songs that combine Eastern rhythms with Western influences and sung in both English and in Arabic.
