Radio

Since 2013 Calamity Jade hosts her own weekly radio show “Funk Shui” on much-loved Italian stations Radio Popolare and Controradio, which airs from July to October and January to May. The program showcases the hottest funk, soul, jazz, afro, breaks and grooves, with particular attention towards modern productions and the independent artists and labels to look out for.

Just like the ancient Chinese art of Feng Shui determines the best arrangement of objects and furniture inside a space according to the canons of Tao, “Funk Shui” tries to combine sounds and rhythms inside 55 minutes of musical programming, following as the only principle the search for the perfect groove.

From dusty 33 rpm records of the 70s up to today’s limited edition 45s or the most recent remixes released exclusively via digital download, the only rule is that the music has to take the listener on a trip along the road less traveled of funk, that vibrant niche that decades after the hits of James Brown can still count on a growing number of fans worldwide.

Each episode includes a special feature on a contemporary artist who presents 3 tracks from their catalogue to introduce the listeners to their sound. The show can be streamed from the websites of both radios, and past episodes can be consulted and listened to by clicking the links below:
