Ajvar at Radio Skanstull episode 54

Episode 54: The sound of Sarajevo

as4

When Ajvar is going to its first ever study trip the choice of destination was as simple as flipping a coin. So we ended up in Sarajevo – the city of breath taking backdrops, lots of Ćevapčići and figs, and a ruined Olympic bobsleigh track. And of course, music. Although we didn’t actually go for it in terms of record hunting, club hopping or brass playing, we simply embraced the feeling and atmosphere, went back to Stockholm and recorded this show.

Featuring the very best of Yugo disko, classic and rock  from the golden age of the 70:s and 80:s. Llike one hit wonder Rok Hotel and the Rolling Stones of Balkan Bijelo Dugme to modern rap from Frenkie & Billain. Ending with a unforgetable cover of the song Aquarius, from the tribal love-rock musical Hair, by Plavi Orkestar.

Where our next trip will take us we don’t know. If you want to flip a coin, please sent us an email info@ajvar.se.

Episode 53: The west side to the east side story

We often say that we’re taking a trip around the world in one hour. This time that’s not only true but it is also done in a structured voyage starting in the west, going through the middle, ending up in the east. Taking off tam tam tam style with Brazilian Sonzeira, Indie Mambo world music band Orkesta Mendoz from Tucson Arizona and Jamaican dancehall ghetto living uptown Busy Signal.

Then passing through Europe and Africa featuring Berlin 17 Hippies, modern nu-soul Ghana emotions and boogie breakdown South African disco with Benjamin Ball. Touching down in Asia at folk-psych songbird Kim Jung Mi:s Beautiful Rivers And Mountains and last but oh so not least with Japanese rock artist Shintaro Sakamoto:s raw dance mashing up Hawaiian steel guitar, Brazilian cuica and banjo.
