Just read the New York Times Magazine article about Treme, David Simon's new HBO series. I'm so damn exited! Simon was the creator/ writer of The Wire, an amazing series about Baltimore's crime, cops, politicians, and newspapers. This new series will tell the stories of jazz musicians in the murder-capital neighborhood of post-Katrina New Orleans. So check out these behind the scenes images by Peter Van Agtmae, the article, and tune in for the premier of Treme on April 11th!

My Guruji

Hello, I just wanted to share my Guruji Hasu Patel's website. I just had my second class of the semester today and it was amazing. She dug up one of her older compositions of Raga Shivranjini. It's a very beautiful Raga that sounds the best and means the most in at midnight. When we arrived at her house there were four children and their mother taking singing lessons. Many Indians from Cleveland bring their children to Auntieji because her teachings are a beautiful way to keep their children connected with their cultural heritage. I am planning a photo shoot at her house and should have some images coming soon! but please go to her website to read more about her. also this is her myspace page.

more vietnam!


Hello there. I've decided that today is the day. The Jux photo blog will now unite and join forces with Juxtable and The Dirty Dog Brothers! For those of who don't know (I don't think that's really any of you, but just in case), I have a radio show on WOBC Oberlin College and Community Radio. The show is a smattering of lovely tunes from around the world and it airs every thursday from 5-7 pm. Anyone can listen to the show live by going to and clicking the live stream button, but starting now I will also post each show on this blog! Who wouldn't want to jam out to some tasty worldly delights while perusing a bunch of pretty pictures.

so great: my first show can be downloaded here. This show was a pretty fun mix of nigerian highlife, ethiopian smooth jams, polonesian folk fairies, and brazilian cattle hearders. Unfortunately since this was my first show many of the songs cut out early and start late. woops. enjoy what you can though!

The second show can be downloaded here. This was the first show in my guest DJ series. Throughout the semester I will invite my friends onto the show to play their music. Many of my friends have a strangely enormous and incredible knowledge of the music of various regions. Such as Ellen my pal who came onto the show this week to play her amazing selection of Eastern European pop and rock of the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. It was a great show and I hope you all enjoy it!

next week tune in for my second guest DJ Noah, as he takes us on a journey through the lovely realms of Brazilian rhythms.
