Eastside Radio’s Album of the Week: Jan 17 – Jan 24

Eastside Radio’s Album of the Week is The Griot by Gaye Adegbalola on the VizzTone label group.

Gaye serves up “topical blues for topical times.” As a griot (gree-oh), she uses her honest vision of the world to record history — as she sees it — in song . . . stories like “(You’re)Flint Water, baby — dirty as you can be;” and I’ve been “Kaepernicked!”— now you are my new Muhammad Ali; and how “I’ll sacrifice my life to stop that FGM” (female genital mutilation); and yet there’s her signature humor in “3 Hour Shoes” and “Liearrhea.”
