MP: African Sounds & Healing Journey

At long last, RevKess has brought back Musica Pagani. As listeners of PMPChannel well know, MP is somewhat infrequent, but RevKess does have a crazy schedule. He’s going to try his best to bring Musica Pagani to the listeners on a more regular basis.

The Mess Debuts Damh’s Wicker Man Single

Sunday the 5th of January brought what we believe to be a first on Murphy’s Magic Mess, the US debut of Damh the Bard’s newest single, The Wicker Man. Released to the public on the 3rd, to the best of our knowledge the Mess was the first terrestrial radio show to play this wonderful single from British Pagan/Druid recording artist Damh the Bard. You can listen to and purchase the single here.

I enjoyed teasing Murf and Kate, as well as the listeners, with hints at what was in store late in the show. Along with Damh’s single we also played a lot of new New Age music from artists like Kristin Amarie, Yang Yiing, Timothy Wenzel, Steven Vitali, Masako and Dan Chadburn. In the second half of the show we brought you new music from SJ Tucker, Wendy Rule and of course Damh the Bard. Along the way we played classic pieces from Inanna, Ubaka Hill and Lesiem. So much more. Check out the play list below for a full listing of the music.

MP #19: New for December 2013

At least for now, RevKess seems to be on a roll. Here’s another fun episode of Musica Pagani. This time 15 new pieces of new age music. With the exception of a two part piece, each track is a different musican or band. Most of it does come from new releases for December, but some are earlier releases just arrived or new releases that arrived for October and November of 2013.

Starting off with a wintery mix for the holiday season, moving into inspirational and then some drumming and vocals, winding down with more instrumentals and closing out with a sampling of Celtic music.

We do hope that you enjoy the combination of musics!

MP: Rock It, Pagan Style pt 1 & 2

Click to Listen

Click to Listen, pt 1 – Pt 2 available here.

Well now, would seem that RevKess has been even more neglectful of things than usual.  It has been some time since he did an edition of Musica Pagani. He’s making it up for it the best he can with a two parter: Rock It, Pagan Style!

Earlier in 2013, Kenny Klein launched a recording project with his touring band FishBird. Some of the music they did was rock-like covers of some of his older music. And of course, every good musician is experimenting with new pieces whenever possible. That’s just what FishBird has done.

In this two parter of Musica Pagani you will get a taste of FishBird as well as some other rocking musicians and bands with a distinctive Pagan flare. Everyone from Leigh Anne Hussey with her unreleased Uglytown demo to Wendy Rule and Rosin Coven, with stops along the way to visit with Omnia and Frenchy and the Punk.

We do hope that you have enjoyed this special edition of Musica Pagani!

PMP & MP Flip

 

Beginning on Saturday 7 September 2013 and Sunday 8 September 2013 Pagan-Musings Podcast and Musica Pagani are flipping around. Due to a major scheduling conflict, RevKess and KaliSara have decided to flip the programs around. As many of the regular listeners have no doubt noticed this summer, RevKess has been absent more often than not from Pagan-Musings. With football season starting up it is almost guaranteed that he will be unavailable for any of the live Saturday broadcasts for the foreseeable future. With careful consideration, the hosts have decided it would be in the interests of the listeners and the channel to change things.

Click to Listen

Beginning on Saturday 7 September 2013 at 7pm Central you can hear Musica Pagani in a recorded format. RevKess wil continue to bring you music from the New Age and Pagan genres along with interview segments with some of those artists. You can also catch some RevKess’s music reviews over at his review site.

Click to listen.

Beginning on Sunday 8 September 2013 at 7pm Central you can hear Pagan-Musings Podcast, most often broadcast live. KaliSara and RevKess will continue to bring you talk and information from the Pagan community with a variety of topics and guests.

Here at PMPChannel we hope that you will find this change to be easy and cause little to no disruption to your listening experience. The hosts are looking forward to being able to continue to bring you the information and entertainment you have grown to appreciate over the years, as well as spice things up a bit with some new topics, new guests, new music, and lots of fun!
