Shamanic Legacy – February 24, 2021

Witsen's Shaman

This week’s edition of Bubble Wrap was a rough and tumble mix of tracks from all over, baby.  There was the old: De La Soul, Parliament, Aretha, Gary Bartz, and even a snippet of Philip Glass.  There was the new with a touch of the familiar: Bobby McFerrin’s daughter Madison doing her new song “Hindsight” and a pair from the son and grandson of Fela (Made and Femi Kute from the Legacy collection).  Plus a few more tracks from recent faves Spunkshine, Mt. Pleasure, Nuevos Dolores, and Welsh rockers Bandicoot.

We loved (and got calls on) Moscow artist Elzy Padme’s new release “Shainarkhan,” dedicated to the shaman culture of Siberia.  And we played “In Time” from the new album Jumble by UK instrumentalists Good 1, a solid jumble if jumble it be.  

What does it all mean?  how could we know?  Read on for everything you missed.
