Ian Nagoski
78rpm listening session & lecture

Tues Sept 7, 9:30PM SHARP!

Bela Dubby
13321 Madison Ave.
Lakewood, Cleveland OH

An hour and a half of rare, vintage music from around the world and
the amazing stories behind the songs.

Ian Nagoski is a musicologist and the founder of Canary Records. His
avocation is inspiring people who love music to love it more.

In 2007 Ian released Black Mirror, a collection of gripping folk and
devotional music recorded between 1918 and 1954 in Syria, Bali,
Scotland, Yugoslavia, Cameroon, and a dozen or so other countries on
Grammy-winning Dust-to-Digital label; Baltimore’s City Paper called it
“enigmatic, transfixing, haunting, pretty, and just plain odd,”
Pitchfork gave it an 8.6, AllMusic gave it a 5/5, and the Kronos
Quartet began performing a piece from it. The academic journal
Ethnomusicology lauded it as an exceptional collection, despite having
been made for the general public.

Nagoski followed Black Mirror with A String of Pearls, on his own
label, Canary Records (manufactured and distributed by Mississippi
Records of Portland, OR) and released a licensed vinyl version of the
ARKO CD Mortika: Recordings From a Greek Underworld, compiled by
Charles Howard and annotated by Tony Klein. The album includes music
from the pre-WWII Greek underworld of outlaws, hash smokers, and
smooth operators. Canary’s upcoming releases include surveys of
superlative recordings of the singers Marika Papagika and Abdul Karim
Khan, and the music of American immigrants from the Ottoman Empire.

Ian is also a writer, who has contributed to dozens of magazines and
blogs, including a recently-published feature on under-the-radar
ethnic record stores in Baltimore as well as infrequent posts at the
Arthur blog. And he is the host of the radio show Fonotopia:

That's funny; a couple of weeks ago at the Jack Wright/Bob Marsh show at Bela Dubby, they set up some chairs in a line by the wall,
and I said it reminded me of the way the players in the movie "Rembetika" were sitting...their set didn't sound like Rembetika, though...
