Tonight in the Explorers Room: Bananasmania – Exotic Disco


Tonight in the Explorers Room we'll be taking a bizarre odyssey through exotica and themes of exoticism in disco and dance music, from Lalo Schifrin's disco-jazz Black Widow to more uncategorizable new wave/electrofunk exotic concept albums.  Germany, Italy, France, Philly, LA, San Francisco, Belgium, even South Africa: everybody it's a little disco-fever revival of turn-of-the-century Egyptomania, or 1920s negrophilié.  Let's investigate.  And get funky.
