For this New Sounds, we'll be treated to "Nordic introspection, Andalusian mysticism and Arabic hues" (-Dan Ouellette,, courtesy of Norwegian pianist and composer Jon Balke.  With Moroccan Amina Alaoui on vocals, Kheir-Eddine M'Kachiche from Algeria on violin, further accompanied by a couple of jazz musicians and a string ensemble, the music reaches back to the Baroque, but sounds well-traveled and trans-cultural.

Also, Jan Garbarek and Ustad Fateh Ali Khan offer ragas and sagas, while Farmers Market blends Norwegian and Bulgarian music.  And there's more!
