This half of the show offered up another one of the classic conversations with a thinker like me..I had the privilege of chatting with Rob Mazurek shortly before he and São Paulo Underground embarked on a rare U.S. tour, with a kick off concert at the Constellation in Chicago. We spoke of where music comes from for Rob, and how being open to the world’s environment around you can benefit you as a listener and enjoyer of art, but also as a person. We hit on how so many journey’s he has made allowed his mind to open up musically and otherwise and hour our friends at Cuneiform Records fit right into this belief.
