Extremely cool cultural collab alert. KCRW is extending our reach with the LA Philharmonic to partner on a series at Walt Disney Concert Hall. The “KCRW Series” will consist of four shows, each spotlighting a specialized take on international music and dance. This includes a set with acclaimed Brazilian samba-pop artist, Marisa Monte; a Flamenco! night with Spain’s Maria Bermudez Sonidos Gitanos, and a full evening with Indian indie-folk artist Prateek Kuhad who has drawn comparisons to Sufjan Stevens and José González. The series is anchored by Korean-American guitar goddess Michelle Zauner who performs under the moniker Japanese Breakfast. She’ll take the stage on Thursday, Sept. 28 alongside Japanese indie-folk-innovator Ichiko Aoba.

We’re serving up some Japanese Breakfast during this edition of MBE by way of the epic centerpiece to Zauner’s 2021 opus Jubilee. Tune in for that, and plenty more international fare today, and everyday on KCRW.
