Boom Festival - Kaleidoscopic Sounds - Episode 1 : Black Music

Playing tracks by

Jimi Hendrix, Sly And The Family Stone, Stevie Wonder, Shuggie Otis, Rotary Connection and more.

Boom Radio debuts a new series of author radio shows, exploring the impact of psychedelic culture on contemporary music. 

For the first episode of Kaleidoscopic Sounds - a Journey in 9 steps to the heart of psychedelia - we delve into the vast world of black music (focus on afro-american heritage): from rock as professed by Jimi Hendrix to orchestral soul by Rotary Connection, psychedelic funk with Stevie Wonder, space groove zoned out guitar madness by Funkadelic all the way to hip hop still dreaming about the future as imagined by the likes of Flying Lotus. The black experience always looks to open their minds to the outer realms.

Next episode: psychedelic jazz moving beyond this world! From Sun Ra to Herbie Hancock and beyond.
