This week’s episode features all manner of rhythm from all corners of the Earth, from water drumming to vocal percussion to rhythms played on actual drums. All in honor of this weekend’s Procession of the Species here in Olympia, and the World Rhythm Festival a bit to the north of us.

Snow and ice disrupted our regular rhythm here in the Pacific Northwest this week, so we’ll see if music can’t get us back on track. Rhythms of percussion, voice, and more in this show, plus a song from Shiyani Ncobo, who passed away Feb. 18 when we had just started getting to know him. A tribute calls him “a gentle and intense man with remarkable insights into human nature.” We’ll miss him.
