What's all the buzz about the beat?
Nation Beat live in the studio with Lopa Kothari on the BBC World Radio 3 in June 2012.
The new CD has been getting a lot of love from the press. We have just moved up to #12 in the CMJ World Music charts. Please call your local radio station and request them to play our new CD. And if they don't have it write to us and let us know so we can send your local radio station a copy of Growing Stone.
Growing Stone was voted one of the top 10 albums in 2011 by the Village Voice. Click here.
American and Brazilian musicians have been finding common ground ever since jazz artists turned to bossa nova 50 years ago. But the result has never sounded quite like this. Listen to the Banning Eyre review on NPR right here. (August, 2008)
"The resulting sound is creative and ﬂawless, a new multi-cultural energy that sounds like it had been bottled up and ready to explode for ages. Luckily, Nation Beat has ﬁnally popped the cork on this perfect combination.....Nation Beat's cross-pollination of music is nothing short of groundbreaking." - Liz Pelly, CMJ (8/6/08)
