Email a Friend

For this New Sounds, we'll hear music to observe the first-ever Muslim World Music Day, lending our air in an effort to “foster a broader understanding of Islam through one of its greatest cultural assets, its music.”  Listen to rare archival footage of the Fez Festival in Morocco recorded by John Schaefer in 2001, along with a live performance by the Mojdeh Ensemble from 1994.  Plus, music from the late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan (& Party), from a live performance in our studios, recorded in 1993.
