RADIO KARANTINA: FROM BEIRUT TO THE REST OF THE WORLD

This week, Thristian invites Nasri Sayegh for Radio Karantina with a message from Beirut to the world.

https://www.mixcloud.com/worldwidefm/radio-karantina-from-beirut-to-the-rest-of-the-world-16-08-20/ https://www.mixcloud.com/worldwidefm/radio-karantina-from-beirut-to-the-rest-of-the-world-16-08-20/

“From Beirut to the world, and/or vice-versa; radiokarantina – born on the eve of March 15 when Lebanon was about to enter total quarantine – is a project that conjures together music, stories, and images during the exceptional times the world is currently witnessing. “Ceci n’est pas une radio! – but rather, a hunch, a sort of intuition that I followed. I quickly understood that this “compulsory medical and sanitary vacation” was here to stay in the long term. It was at first out of pure desire and pleasure that I began to share music with the world from my apartment, and then to go beyond the confined walls of my home by inviting friends into the ‘musical family’, and to finally – and humbly – set the example and encourage people to stay at home. Since that day, and with the generous creative participations of more than a hundred artists, writers, theatre makers and enthusiasts that have shaped its musical journey, radiokrantina has been somehow a humble echo chamber listening to and reverberating the turmoil in Lebanon and beyond. But nothing had prepared us for the unspeakable horror that was about to destroy Beirut. Since August 4, 6:09pm, after the horrendous explosion that has left our beloved city completely devastated, radiokarantina has stopped emitting music. Speechless, soundless, still under-shock, but most of all enraged against the political system that has been slowly killing Lebanese people since many decades and that is responsible for the unprecedented ravage, radiokarantina has opened its ears and eyes to many calls for donations. Radiokarantina would like to thank Global Roots and Worldwide FM for their precious solidarity. Here are some sounds from Beirut and beyond. Please consider donating to this list of initiatives that have been working and helping on the ground since the blast. There are many other grassroot initiatives. Please stay in touch with us. Keep an eye on us. Stay informed – the coming days and weeks are crucial. And most of all, please donate and spread our sounds and words. Beirut needs you. You need Beirut. Love. Nasri Sayegh, founder of radiokarantina

13 MARCH 2020

Trepandado, Selvagem from Sao Paulo, Brazil joined me in the studio. It turned out to be a show with an unrecognisable backdrop. As the potentiual consequences of the COVID 19 outbreak start to dawn on us this would be the last Global Roots Radio show before the lockdown and the UK along with the rest of Europe was told to stay at home.
Only a few days later and the idea of hanging out in the studio with people and talking about a weekend full of gigs and festivals seem like a distant memory.
Big respects to Augusto Olivani (Trepanado) for rolling through. I’m a big fan of his work on the Selvagem compilations, and as we discovered in the show they put on fantastic parties in Sao Paulo and really work hard to discover and share previously unappreciated Brazilian music. It was also exciting to hear that they’re now working on new music, some of which he previewed in his mix.

I met Moullinex on a chance occasion in Mexico. I’ve been familiar with his work for some time and promptly invited him on the show. Instead of speaking face to face in the studio I connected with Luis via whatsapp while he “stayed at home” in Lisbon and sent over a mix of music from his peers.

The whole show was conducted in isolation and the first two hours was the usual selection of new and recently re-issued music.

27 MARCH 2020

We’ve all been advised go self isolate, stay at home and gatherings of more than 2 people have been banned.

It’s a new world with new rules. We constructed The Isolation Station and will be broadcasting Global Roots Radio live from there for as long as we can.

This weeks real life online guest is Glenn Astro. We spoke via WhatsApp about the immediate effects of the virus pandemic and what it might mean. I also caught up with Sam who runs Cakeshop in Seoul, South Korea. He gave us a casual insight into how the pandemic has effected him as club owner (early nights and no dancing laws).
