16: Smiz
Sam Setchko better known as Simsamiza or Smiz if you happen to be in to brevity. Born in Oakland, California little Smiz was a rugged renegade who’d gone rogue and found his heart skating the streets of the Bay Area whilst discovering the intrinsic rhythms of all things. Eventually ascertaining that frequency and rhythm were different expressions or density’s of the same fundamental value he’s spent a lifetime artistically collaborating and performing in a myriad of mediums that sometimes are traditional but often involve chaotic spirals in to uncharted and unique eclectic expressions most humans find repulsive for about 10-20 years. He’s the most widely unknown philosopher of his time. This interview was orignally recored on January 10, 2022.

0: Intro to the World Music Podcast by Will Marsh
Welcome to the World Music Podcast!  Here in Episode #0 I speak about what this podcast is all about.  My life journey as a musician led to me discovering the richness musical culture outside of the Western world. I'm passionate about sharing such music as well as the cultural ideals along with it. This podcast is a great place for someone who appreciates creative music and is looking to broaden their awareness of music outside the main stream. There are some fun questions and topics that come up when exploring the idea of "world music." One being that isn't all music from the "world"? What does that mean then for this genre/ term "world music?" In following episodes, you'll hear what prominent musicians in this field have to say about this. Thanks for joining me and enjoy!
