Spannered just put up full transcripts of Camilo Rocha’s interviews with “Globalistas,” musicians who have ripped up national borders and redefined world music through their globetrotting, multinationally aware ways. I’m really digging how Part 1 is wayne&wax (Harvard grad (we’re not all lame), recent dad, fellow Jamaican enthusiast, ethnomusicologist, DJ), Part 2 is DJ/rupture (another Harvard grad, speaker at the National Free Culture Conference 2007, and all around amazing guy)…and the almighty Diplo doesn’t show up until Part 3.
…Yeah, this was basically a “I know cool people” post. But the interviews are really interesting too! Check them out.
