Show Notes

For decades, salsa king Rodrigo Muñoz has been one of the standard-bearers for Winnipeg’s Latin music scene.

We had a great chat about his 30+ years leading Papa Mambo, playing Afro-Cuban jazz with a full band vs. a stripped-down trio, tackling social media, and much more!

This episode brought to you by our pals at Devine Shirt Company and by Gruf and Yy's new 'Mental Health Day' album on Saskatoon Folk Rap Records.

WR219: Jesse Matas

Jesse Matas of critically-acclaimed local folk/roots touring machines The Crooked Brothers has a long history with Witchpolice. His first-ever band (circa 1995) featured current Witchpolice Radio host Sam on guitar and past co-host/longtime collaborator Rob Crooks on vocals. He has also released a number of recordings on the site itself and in connection with various pre-Witchpolice attempts at starting record labels. While the Crooked Bros. are on a brief hiatus from their hectic road life, Jesse sat down to talk about solo work, songwriting, his experiences as a working musician inside and outside of the band, and more. He also performed a number of live acoustic songs (including a cover tune and a Crooked Bros. classic), which you'll hear throughout the episode. ...
