The Next Big Thing 2003.10.02 – "Walkman Busting #3"

LOCATION: Union Square, New York City

In this episode, we first encounter a young woman listening to the one-stringed berimbao of capoeira music.  She is an avid practitioner of the Brazilian martial art dance.  Fifty feet away, we meet a couple of rocker girls in high-school who complain about the “weird cult-like music” of the Brazilian capoeristas. The revere Korn and System of a Down.  We also hear froma bonafide groupie of Frank Zappa, who introduced him to the found sound of John Cage and Edgar Varese while in a dressing room on the road.
