Culturetopia: Attacking Everything Edition

Filed by KOSU News in Art & Life.
March 8, 2012

“Murga attacks everything,” says a Uruguayan choir director during our podcast of the week’s best arts stories. Murga is a kind of choral music that sticks it to everyone during competitions that take place as part of Uruguay’s Carnaval festivities. They’re said to be the longest in the world — the party goes on for well over a month.

We’ve also got pieces this week about fixing the misquote on the new Martin Luther King Jr. memorial on the National Mall, an interview with the British singer Estelle, a review of the top-grossing movie so far this year, Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax, and a look at the new memoir by New York Times foreign correspondent Anthony Shadid. House of Stone was published just days after Shadid’s tragic and untimely death while reporting in Syria.
