Accordion Noir radio playlist 2020-05-06: International Accordion Day, No. 191

Adding insult to injury…

Cinco de Mayo can be framed as a big accordion holiday (with a big asterisk) but the following day, May 6th, marks the day Cyrill Demian patented the first accordion in 1829… making it the biggest accordion holiday of them all! Naturally we celebrate it scrupulously (and have been counting down to May 6, 2029 for years, looking forward to the instrument’s bicentennial!) What that amounted to on the ground for last night’s episode of CFRO’s weekly Accordion Noir program (and did you get around to sending them in a donation for their member drive?) is another typical mix from us, of music using this amazing instrument across numerous disparate styles from far-flung reaches of the planet. All that, plus a nod to the pandemic and a late-breaking salute to the late Florian Schneider of Kraftwerk. If you haven’t already been notified by your Apple or Android podcast subscriptions, you can enjoy listening to the broadcast courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:

“… And the book I mentioned, about Cyril Demian’s son moving to Colombia is: Antes del Juglar, by Jorge Ignacio Garnica (@NatchoDeLoyola) (Caiixta Editions, Bogota, 2018)”

Thanks for reading us here (and hopefully listening to us, there), but if you find you want more, you can always keep up with us on Twitter (@AccordionNoir and @AccordionBruce), Instagram (@AccordionNoirFest), and Facebook at Accordion Noir fansthe Accordion Noir Festival, and the Vancouver Squeezebox Circle (tonight, a packed video chatroom on Zoom!)  Cheers & squeeze on!
