Bom Carnaval! Charlotte Algar and Erica McKoy with Sergio Naidin14.02.21
Bom Carnaval! In this two-part show, Worldwide FM producer, programmer and resident samba obsessive Charlotte Algar is joined by Erica McKoy for a deep dive into all things carnaval brasileira. Although the celebrations will be somewhat muted this year, it’s an important time to pay homage to a culture that has birthed so much of the music hold dear here at Worldwide FM.
On this episode, Erica and Charlotte speak to Rio de Janeiro-based Sergio Naidin (pictured), an ethnomusicologist, percussionist and carnaval judge, no less. The three cover topics spanning the logistics of the parade, the rich African and European histories of the tradition and the economics of carnaval.
