Hisham Mayet of Sublime Frequencies checked in to remind FMU listeners that he's on tour this week to debut some of the latest travelogues, well worthy of your attendance. These films are like few others in the way they document the essence and raw beauty of music/culture of exotic (and sometimes rarely documented) lands, right down to capturing the sounds from a vantage point of making you feel actually immersed in the performing combo. The Mayet-directed Musical Brotherhoods from the Trans-Saharan Highway (You Tube trailer) makes its public debut at Anthology Film Archives, 32 2nd Avenue in New York City on January 5th at 7 and 9pm, then on to the Philadelphia International House on Saturday the 6th, 3701 Chestnut Street. On Sunday the 7th, the film moves on to Baltimore, where True Vine Records presents a showing at the 5th Floor, 405 West Franklin Street. Finally in the Boston area, it will be showing at 9pm at Infrasound, 7 Sherman Street in Charlestown as a double feature with the previously released Niger: Magic and Ecstasy in the Sahel. Mayat will be present at all screenings for Q&A, and there's another showing January 19th in Cleveland (venue TBA), where Sumatran Folk Cinema (You Tube trailer), directed by Porest/Neung Phak's Mark Gerghis and Sun City Girls/Sublime Frequencies Alan Bishop will show as well.
