This week on the program we feature the deep, soulful grooves of Yemen Blues. In 2010, singer & composer Ravid Kahalani founded the rare combination of world class musicians that is called Yemen Blues. The result of this amazing group is a powerful energy that mixes Yemenite, West African, Latin & Jazz influences and what Ravid likes to call “New Culture Music”. Their latest studio effort is called, Insaniya. They were on a US tour just a few weeks ago when we caught up with them at The Levitt Shell in midtown Memphis.
Grammy nominated blues man, Guy Davis, will be with us to deliver an installment of the Blues Hall of Fame, an exploration of the lives of the pioneers and innovators enshrined in the Blues Hall of Fame, here in Memphis, TN, brought to you by the blues Foundation.
