    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#1107] Taiwan - A Sense of Place - Part Four In 1869, Francis Galton, an English anthropologist argued that all talent was the result of heredity. No matter what the skill - from painting a great picture - to inventing a perfect recipe - it was always the result of the genes you received from your parents. Today, we know that he was smart, but wrong. What we are is the result of the interaction of our genes and our environment and our biology is continually altered by our environment. In these programs, Burt interviews a number of famous Taiwanese-Americans who grew up in traditional Taiwanese homes and immigrated to the United States, including an internet billionaire, a top Hollywood director, and a man who builds 6 million bicycles every year. Then, Burt travels to Taiwan to look at the key influences on their lives including one of Taiwan's most famous museums, a train that travels at over 150 miles an hour, big budget martial arts movies, a restaurant that presents dishes based on famous works of Chinese art, and one of the world's greatest choreographers. Burt tries to discover how the early life of these successful people affected the way they think now. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Infinity Hall Live [#206H] Rubblebucket It is clear from a single listen that Rubblebucket is not your ordinary indie band. Their unbridled sound is a collage of jazzy horns, rich drums, funky electric and rock elements all combined to form their own genre-bending style. As front woman and vocalist Kalmia Traver describes it "We're like indie/rock/dance with horns and the funk element, and then this slight sort of afro-punk, art-pop edge." With eight members in the band, Rubblebucket takes full advantage of a big, bold sound that engages their listeners. "The kind of music we play involves a lot of interlocking parts where everybody's part of a bigger whole," says bandleader Alex Toth. The band uses a multitude of instruments to create their unique sound including a trumpet, trombone, saxophone, keyboards, guitar, bass, drums and additional percussive instruments. The most dynamic instrument in the group may be the voice of front woman Traver, whose vibrant vocals showcase an impressive range and stylistic ability. While based out of Brooklyn today, Rubblebucket evolved at the University of Vermont by Alex Toth and Kalmia Traver, who were both enrolled as music majors. The two of them played in a reggae band until they met percussionist Craig Myers at an art gallery opening in 2007. Their musical chemistry lead to the beginnings of Rubblebucket, and by 2008, the band released their first album, Rose's Dream. 2012 was a banner year for Rubblebucket. They graced the stage of the popular music festival Bonnaroo, made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live and received numerous positive reviews from Rolling Stone, Stereogum, Paste and the Wall Street Journal. Their set at Norfolk's Infinity Hall features ten song selections from their three albums, as well a couple of as-yet-unreleased tracks. Rubblebucket takes the stage with a presence that enthralls the crowd, keeping them dancing on their feet throughout the entire show. The show builds to a thrilling crescendo with the performance of "Came Out of a Lady" when the audience unfurls and waves a colorful silk parachute across the width of the room. duration 56:11   STEREO TVPG

    American Masters [#2304] Cachao: Uno Mas The Grammy winning bassist Israel "Cachao" Lopez died in Coral Gables, Florida, in March 2008, at almost 90 years of age. A maestro of legendary status on the world stage and ultimately considered one of the greatest Afro-Cuban musicians of all time, he had made his home in the United States for the past four decades. However, he continued playing the Havana clubs and dance halls with his brother Orestes. Together, they revolutionized the heart of Cuban music -- their spontaneous improvisations and innovations established the basis of, and the influence of, contemporary Latin jazz and salsa, rock 'n roll and rhythm and blues. The basis of this film is a sold-out 2005 concert at Bimbo's 365 Club, a famous San Francisco nightclub. Cachaos's life and work are palpable. "Cachao: Uno Mas" is produced and narrated by actor Andy Garcia, a friend and ardent fan, who helped reinvigorate Cachao's career in the 1990s -- and who appears in this film playing the bongos. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG
