“I Zimbra” is a bi-weekly radio show brought to you by Isabel Steffes featuring an hour of the best boundary-breaking experimental music throughout history. This show features music across all genres, locations, and time periods that, in one way or another, opened the doors for exploration and innovation.
I Zimbra will highlight influential and revolutionary artists who explored new territories and pioneered new styles. Whether it be King Tubby’s mastering of dub engineering, A.G. Cook’s glittering pop melodies or Talking Head’s use of Dada sound poetry for lyrics, I Zimbra will explore it all.
So tune in, sit back, and relax, as we explore the weird, funky, and even absurd corners of music history.
