The 9:13 Buzz with Sarah Wardrop
Every Wednesday at 9:13 am, one of WYEP’s trusted music experts joins me (Cindy Howes) on The Morning Mix to play a couple favorite new songs and share some insight. Today we welcome Sarah Wardrop from WFUV in New York!
In case you missed, it here’s what she played:
Tash Sultana, Jungle - Tash Sultana has already earned big buzz in Australia and it has traveled quickly to the U.S. ahead of her upcoming tour. Music helped her get through some personal battles, and she's gone from busking to winning awards for her songs and powerful performances. This self-taught musician is also a looping wizard, so aside from checking out her EP, be sure to watch video of Tash bringing "Jungle" to life.
Sinkane, U'Huh - Brooklyn-based Ahmed Gallab is back with a sixth Sinkane album, called Life & Livin' It, which is out on Friday. England, Sudan and Ohio are just a few of his other stops around the globe, and those travels seem to make his fusion of funk, jazz and Afropop even more soulful. This song has been out for a few months, but it's worth playing (and repeating) to get its positivity out into the world.
