Born in NYC and raised in Port of Spain, Trinidad, in the Caribbean, he's absorbed diverse musical influences that he has shared on the long-running "Spirit of Carnival," "Rhythm Drive," and now "Music of the World."
Contemporary traditions of world music, with an emphasis on acoustic folk and classical traditions are presented with information about the land, culture and history of the people. Kutay Derin Kugay brings music and culture from distant lands to Bay Area audiences, including occasional live musicians and guest scholars in KPFA's studios. A broad spectrum of world music is honored in this program, from Asia to Africa to Eastern Europe, Southwest Asia, the Mediterranean and everywhere in between.
In a musical journey that began in England in the late 1970's, composer, performer, multi-instrumentalist and radio DJ Stephen Kent has blazed a trail across five continents, living at various times in the UK, Spain, Australia and the USA. His musical scores, composed for theatre, circus and dance companies, have received international acclaim and his work as a performer and recording artist has established him as a unique talent in the global music scene. He is one of the foremost exponents of the Australian Aboriginal Didjeridu in contemporary music.
