Episode #3245

Musical Cross-Pollination

« previous episode | next episode »

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

On this edition of New Sounds, we'll hear from singers who reach across musical traditions, including a new recording of a Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan piece – “Mustt Mustt” - by Indo-Canadian singer Kiran Ahluwalia, featuring the Tuareg musical rebels from Mali, Tinariwen.  Kiran says of the collaboration - "I knew it would be compelling to have a song from the South Asian Islamic tradition performed with Muslims from Mali."  We'll hear the results on this program. 

We'll also listen to Indian Sufi singer Zila Khan, (daughter of late great sitar player Ustad Vilayat Khan), incorporating texts that pay tribute to the musician and saint Hazrat Amir Khusrau, who started the Qawwali singing movement in the 13th century. Plus, music from a Portuguese fado singer incorporating music from the Cape Verde islands, a Cape Verdean singer collaborating with musicians from Egypt, and an Irish singer incorporating the loping rhythms of African desert blues.
