Frankie100 - Sunday Night - Naomi Uyama by Ryan Swift via Flickr
Episode 5 of The Track is out today, featuring guest Naomi Uyama!
Tune in to hear my conversation with Naomi about about her time in New York City starting down the path as a singer and band leader, and about Lindy Hop as a living art form, tracing the thread that connects Count Basie’s “Jumpin’ at the Woodside” (Amazon, iTunes) and Usher’s club hit “Yeah!” (Amazon, iTunes). We also cover a little controversy around teacher’s pay rates and how they relate to the greater picture of having a career as a traveling swing dance instructor.
