This seemed like the perfect week to focus on one of our core artists. AL GROMER KHAN is an old friend who lives in Munich and has been perfecting his unique approach to contemplative music and sound for over three decades and almost 40 albums -- and he's just getting started! We've played his music on Hearts of Space since the late 1970s, even before the national show.
We were provoked by a lovely long letter (remember letters?) from listener Kirk Dodd, gently taking us to task for never doing an artist special on AGK. Point taken, Kirk. Agreed, and now, done. Plus we have easily enough worthy material for two more.
If you're not familiar with Al's music this show will serve as an introduction to the quiet riches in his recorded repertoire and his subtle approach to the Indian sitar as well as his unique approach to electronics. It's the PAISLEY MUSIC of Al Gromer Khan.
