The Buddhist Influence

« previous episode | next episode »

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

For this New Sounds program, listen to Buddhist-inspired music, including new music from the elusive composer Anton Batagov who has  put out a recording of his music featuring chants by the leading Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader of the Kalmykia people. We’ll also hear selections from the Steve Tibbetts collaboration with the Tibetan Buddhist nun, Chöying Drolma - “Chö.” Then there’s the sounds of traditional Tibetan Buddhist instruments in music from David Parsons. Plus, music from Philip Glass’s soundtrack to the movie Kundun (about the young Dalai Lama coming of age and escaping Tibet with his life, during the time frame of 1937 to 1959.)
