A Cultural Manifesto, with local DJ and "NUVO" columnist Kyle Long, explores the merging of a wide spectrum of global music with the more familiar American styles of music, such as soul, hip-hop and jazz. In each episode listeners can expect to hear intriguing new sounds and styles of music from all sorts of international traditions.
Long’s goal with his program is more than entertainment. “I really want to use music as a bridge to create cultural understanding,” he says.
Listen to A Cultural Manifesto on 90.1 WFYI Wednesdays evening at 9 p.m. and again on Saturdays at 3 p.m. on 90.1 HD2 -- The Point. Or stream it on wfyi.org.
