What sounds can be heard in the mud? What’s the rhythm of the waves? What currents lead from West Africa via the Caribbean to America’s north? In two episodes, the Wassermusik podcast listens to the sounds of the Mississippi and the stories of the musicians who live on its banks, between floods and swamps, rhythms and dance.
With Donald Harrison, Leyla McCalla, Logan Schutts of Kumasi and Jerry Williams, Jr. a.k.a. Swamp Dogg
