Where Mexican Folk Ballads Meet Trap Music
‘Trapcorridos’ — tales of love, bandits, heroes and gangsters — are a sensation in California and Mexico.

She’s Rising From the Depths of Soviet Music History
Interest is building in Galina Ustvolskaya, the reclusive Russian composer born 100 years ago whose nickname was “the lady with the hammer.”
She was even chagrined when Shostakovich claimed her as a kind of muse: It is not you who are under my influence, he once wrote to her. It is I who am under yours. She strongly disagreed. He burdened and killed my best feelings, she wrote. The back-and-fort… [+2225 chars]

Echo Flex is an inexpensive way to put Alexa in any outlet
Not content with the rather larger number of Alexa devices already on the market, Amazon just announced the Echo Flex that plugs directly into the wall. Sort of like a Glade Plugin. But instead of a pine fresh smell, it integrates into the growing Alexa unive…

But right at the beginning of Country Music is an acknowledgment that slave songs formed part of early countrys raw material. And then a reminder that the banjo has its roots in West African stringed gourd instruments. The series covers how A.P. Carter, a fou… [+2123 chars]
