Live tonite on your RADIO!
Phew! Itâs the Begilufin SUMMER SUNSHINE special!
Tonight your sweaty hosts Ziv Lode and Dan Abbott fan you into submission with 60 minutes of hotânâ hazy tunes themed around the world of summer. Holidays, heatwaves, hay-fever and heat - hallelujah! A selection of melting melodies from around this overheating globe. Set the controls for the heart of the eardrum!
On tonightâs âIslandâ in the middle of the show, we spin a couple of numbers from Brazilian Chico Bernardesâ latest album, a drifty and spaced-out acoustic guitar trip, a surprisingly minimalistic sound for something played on our show. Thanks to Mapache Records for help with this one!
Begilufin is an hour long radio show broadcast live twice a month from the heart Berlin on the station Pi Radio. On Begilufin we play a wild, confusing mess of international sounds, stretching from the birth of recorded music to something we heard two days ago. We do our best to ignore the normal, accentuate the weird, and ignore borders, boundaries and time-zones. Each show revolves around a central theme and then we surprise each other (and you, dear listener) with our selections live on air.
Since you ask, âBegilufinâ is a Hebrew word meaning intoxicated, inebriated, drunk, sozzled or smashed - a perfect description of the delirious off-centre mix of crazed music we like to spin on the show or indeed the effect it might have on your ears.
Begilufin was created by Ziv Lode in 2010. Ziv was joined by Dan Abbott a couples of years later after a chance meeting in a kindergarten playground revealed a mutual love of the music of Erkin âThe Turkish Hendrixâ Koray.
