Head Sounds with Tostoni // 21-06-20
Tune in for an hour long mix by Venezuelan DJ Toni Arellano aka Tostoni coming to you live from Mexico City. Join us as he explores Venezuelan folk music, traditional, pop and experimental sounds.
He starts off the episode with Venezuelan Grupo Tizzom's only recording, a spaced out bossa nova from early 70s. Following that, he presents Kai Alce's Amerika, Ray Barretto’s trippy drum odyssey, Espiritu Libre and vintage tracks from Don Cunningham and Ansel Wyatt. Next is latin rock cover of the classic Needles And Pins by Los Challengers from Puerto Rico, giving path for a string of rare Venezuelan afro psychedelic rock tracks from La Extraña Dimensión, Grupo Bota, Apocalipsis, Grupo CIM, Monsalve Y Sus Forajidos and Sietecuero. Before he finished the mix, he goes into tunes from Francis Bebey, Sambrasa Trio and Virgilio Araque.
