Fossilised Frequencies with Urban Feral

This Sunday’s show is a homage to the Kawliyah of Iraq. Kawliyah is used not only as a noun for a community, but also depicts an art form that has hugely shaped the music and dance culture of Iraq up until this day. Despite its massive contribution to the arts, there is still significant marginalisation of the people who have shared these specific sounds and dances throughout Iraq and thereafter, throughout the world. This hour invites you to honour their embodied sounds: the hair whipping, wrist turning, belly dancing and freedoms of movement that Kawliyah gifted us.



An Interview with Martín Prechtel (Cree)

In this episode, Tiokasin Ghosthorse speaks with Martín Prechtel of the Cree indigenous people of North America, a leading writer and teacher. In his native New Mexico, Martín teaches at his international school Bolad’s Kitchen, a hands-on historical and spiritual immersion into language, music, ritual, farming, cooking, smithing, natural colors, architecture, animal raising, clothing, tools, grief, and humor to help people from many lands, cultures, and backgrounds to remember and retain the majesty of their diverse origins while cultivating the flowering of integral culture in the present: to grow a time of hope beyond our own.

Martín’s books include: “Secrets of the Talking Jaguar”, “Long Life, Honey in the Heart”, “The Disobedience of the Daughter of the Sun”, “Stealing Benefacio’s Roses”, “The Unlikely Peace of Cuchumaquic” and “The Smell of Rain on Dust: Grief and Praise”
