A Private Reel: Live on Soundcheck

« previous episode | next episode »

Thursday, August 18, 2011

For this New Sounds, we raid the exclusive live performance archive from that "other" show John Schaefer hosts, the afternoon program, Soundcheck. We'll listen for tunes from pipa player Wu Man, Cuban singer Omara Portuondo, and the Italian percussionist Alessandra Belloni, to name a few.

Plus, performances by Zakir Hussain and some of the Masters of Percussion, a traditional Mongolian drinking song from Hanggai, and jazz clarinet player Anat Cohen. And so much more, including soft and dangerous banjo songs from Sam Amidon, Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars, and Irish trad tunes from Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill.
