Good morning! How about a little funky Afropop, all the way from Iceland, to start your morning? That’s how we began our broadcast from Iceland Airwaves last month, with the 13 member Samúel Jón Samúelsson Big Band blasting you awake at 6AM. Now you have the luxury to enjoy the SJS Big Band whenever you like (though we still recommend waking up to them every morning!), thanks to the live video we’ve now posted from their entire performance, live on KEXP from KEX hostel in Reykjavik. Prepare to dance your way from your bed to the shower with the full performance below, and once you’re fully awake, go grab our recent Song of the Day podcast for “Ethiópían” from their latest album, 4 Hliðar. You can also read more about their session at KEX and check out photos here.
