                              KhruangbinCon Todo El MundoNight Time Stories

                              Khruangbin’s sounds are rooted in the deepest waters of world music infused with classic soul, dub and psychedelia. Their 2015 debut album ‘The Universe Smiles Upon You’ was heavily influenced by 60’s and 70’s Thai cassettes the band listened to on their long car journeys to rehearsal in the Texan countryside. ‘Con Todo El Mundo’ takes inspiration not just from South East Asia but similarly underdiscovered funk and soul of the Mediterranean and the Middle East and beyond!

                              Lament For Rastafari and Other Playsby Edgar WhiteMarion Boyars

                              Lament for Rastafari is part-ritual, part-panoramic vision of black/white relations within the confines of Rastafarian consciousness. It begins in the West Indies and follows the trials and tribulations of black families as they move from their island communities to London and finally to New York.


                              Edgar White was born in the West Indies. He has lived in the United States and England. His plays have been successfully presented in New York, London and Africa. Other books by Edgar White also available from Marion Boyars include Redemption Song and other plays and The Rising.

                                    "A long-awaited, in-depth study of the loft music phenomena of the 1970s. Based on firsthand accounts, it tells the story of musicians, largely African American, in this time of intense creativity and of self-determination. It is a story that needs to be told as the musical evolution, largely ignored, continues into the present."--William Parker, bassist, composer, and author
