Jack's Big Music Show features Nuttin' But Stringz
, an extremely talented duo featuring Damien and Tourie Escobar
, Julliard-school violinists and brothers who kick out some amazing Hip-hop/R&B tracks. They're most recently featured as an interstitial musical performance on Jack's Big Music Show
, my daughter's favorite show on Noggin
, a cable channel from Nickelodeon
aimed specifically at preschoolers. N.B.S joins other Jack's favorites like Laurie Berkner
and the Flaming Lips
(who tear up the dance floor with guest singer-songwriter Steve Burns, who you may or may not remember as Steve from Blue's Clues
). You don't have to be a preschooler to enjoy the show or the music. N.B.S., in particular, were recently featured on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, the Ellen Show, as well as making an appearance at the Apollo Theater. Amazon has some listen links
if you want to check them out. The track featured on Noggin is "Thunder".

Then, as he escorted me to the elevator, he said, “New Yorker? How many people see that shits
He reflected a moment. “Damn. Who needs Hot 97? I got New Yorker and MySpace.”

funky do morro
From the ghettos of brazil comes this funky and fun music that recalls the energy and optimism of early 80's hip hop. Think Afrika Bambaataa and Malcolm McLaren. Before rap crossed over to the dark side.
