Journey Without Maps brings you vintage, rare, and underground global music from uncharted sonic territories. Every week, I unearth a new musical landscape: African soul & funk, Latin rhythms, eastern European electronica, Middle East psychedelic, Asian surf rock … and more.
Journey Without Maps is a production of WERA-LP 96.7 FM and Arlington Independent Media. For archives, updates, and to broadcast the episodes on your station, contact:
Dancehall fiddles, kitchen-party squeeze boxes, front-porch foot percussion. The beans don’t have no salt. Wine, the glass & the bottle in hand. Give me the keys to the prison. From the river towns of Quebec, the backwoods of New England, the bayous of Louisiana, and the farms of Illinois – with roots in the Celtic traditions of Ireland and Brittany, African, Spanish, and American country – this is the music of the French in America.
