Here’s the deal…us white people are famous for being crappy dancers who need to be buzzed to get out on the dance floor (generally speaking). The Mexicans will wait…it’s OK. Then have your DJ ease gently into a 3-song block of Spanish music (like Statement,” Dana Enduro,” and La Vida Es UN Carnival or “Bailey” by Zorro).
And please no Mac arena.” AT THE START of the Spanish block, quell the gringos’ fears by having your DJ announce, “Cupid Shuffle coming up in 10 minutes.” Phew! White folks stop panicking, knowing some more English music is right around the corner.
Go into a second set of “real” Spanish music after a few English songs…start with Salsa, Cum bias, or Merengue. Save the Corridor, Band, and Zapateados until the white people go to bed in another 20 minutes.

The events leading up to the concert are aimed at creating a cultural context to make the music and poetry more accessible to Western audiences. It has been a great experience for me to work with Augustan to help document the process of creating “Words Adorned.” I’ve learned a lot about the differences between Western and Arab music, muwashshahat, and the time period of Al Annals.
Comedians and sketch writers create jokes, scenes and stories from current events, pop culture and even mundane daily tasks. Many of these performers use their platform to poke fun at a myriad of genres and music experiences by dressing up like punks, rockers and rappers themselves.
Many are familiar with the comedic styling of Saturday Night Live, but here are 10 other sketch shows, from Comedy Central to YouTube, that are sharing the music love and jokes to audiences everywhere.
