Get blasted by music from the masters of the face-guitar and smack-smack drum, Caspian Hat Dance on this New Sounds.  This "street band" is from the Netherlands, and draws from Eastern European gypsy/klezmer music, strains of South American and Italian folk music.

Also, listen to "Chinagrass" music, from Xinjiang in Western China and sung in the Kazakh language by Mamer, along with electroacoustic Argentinian folktronica from Tremor. Plus, Bavarian gypsy brass from LaBrassBanda, Portuguese fado by Deolinda, Algerian/French torch singing from Kamel el Harrachi, and  more.

Cinematic Audio (Weekly Podcast)

American sound-designer, film editor and composer, Matteo Marchisano-Adamo makes cinematic audio sculptures out of prepared piano and electronics from a collection of “Inventions.” We'll also hear electronic music based on the sounds of Indonesian gamelan by Gregory Taylor, and some rooted in sounds from Jamaica as well. That, and more on this New Sounds.
