Michigan-based songwriter Dawn Xiana Moon has roots in Singapore where she was born coming to the U.S. at age 5 when her father got a job transfer to Farmington Hills.

 

She returned to Singapore with her family after less than a year but was back at age 6 after the family had decided to settle in the United States permanently, she told Michael Teach of Chicago Acoustic Underground recently.

 

You can download the entire 27 minute podcast here with music and interviews, but be ware dial-up users. It’s going to take a while.

 

Or visit the Chicago Acoustic Underground site to sample a growing archive of independent music podcasts here.

 

Dawn also maintains a website and blog with more photos like the one above, writings on a variety of issues and has a CD for sale.

Spoon slide guitarist offers unique sound

Hannes Coetzee

Watch this YouTube video clip of South African spoon slide guitarist Hannes Coetzee from the David Kramer documentary Karoo Kitaar Blues.

 

Coetzee’s notability is still being debated for inclusion by editors over at Wikipedia and frankly the music is new to me, but my own two cents is that it deserves a wider audience based only on the little I’ve heard.

 

Visit David Kramer’s homepage for more info and for music from Coetzee and other musicians from around the world be sure to check out Calabash Music, dubbed the world’s first fair trade music company.

 

Add any thoughts including more information on music available from Coetzee below.
