For this New Sounds, we’ll hear a collaboration between two giants - Bill Frisell and Brazilian singer/songwriter/guitarist/percussionist Vinicius Cantuaria - which melds traditional Latin rhythms with loops and improvisational jazz. There’s also music from global musician composer/DJ/tabla-playing/producer Karsh Kale. Plus, hear Afro-Indian sounds from Trilok Gurtu & the Frikyiwa Family who combine south-Malian percussive styles with the rhythmic influences of Gurtu’s Indian heritage. And much more.
