Hugh Masekela: Wedding Songs That Don't Sound Blue

Originally published on Tue March 27, 2012 8:50 am

In 1968, Hugh Masekela was not quite 30 years old and though he was in exile from his homeland of South Africa, he seemed ready to become at home on the American jazz and pop markets. That summer, he had scored a number one single, "Grazing in the Grass." A year earlier, he'd been one of the few international performers at the 1967 Monterrey International Pop Festival and had appeared in its D.A. Pennebaker documentary. Yet strangely enough, over the next 45 years Masekela never quite found his sweet spot.

Dick and Jane Song of the Week: "I Love Nature"

Listen Here for the Story Behind the Song.

LYRICS

I love nature because of the beautiful colors. I love nature because nature is pink. I like the colors because of the green in the trees. The colors are lovely just the way they are.

I love nature because of the beautiful sounds. I love nature because the sounds are so funny. I just think to myself, ”they’re magnificent.” The birds chirp and sing ’cause that’s the way they are.

I feel the grass when I go hiking. I feel the bugs when they bite me. And the flowers they are colorful. And the berries are juicy just the way they are. The colors are lovely just the way they are. The birds chirp and sing ’cause they way they are. The berries are juicy just they way they are.

Polica On 'World Cafe: Next'

Channy Casselle of Polica combines jazz, blues and electronic elements with AutoTuned vocals for a chilling effect.
Colin Kerrigan

Polica's sound is crisp, minimalist and mesmerizing. Singer Channy Leaneagh plays her voice like an instrument, using AutoTune both in the studio and at live shows to manipulate her vocals. Against the sliding violins, saxophone solos, relaxed bass and dueling drums of Polica, it's hard to believe that before this, Leaneagh sang folk music for six years in her previous band, Roma di Luna.
