Eurasian Folk

For this New Sounds, we’ll sample music rooted in both Europe and Asia, along with updated folk music from both regions.  Hear Indian sitar and Basque (northern Spain) marimba come together in music from Oreka Tx, as well as music from the throat singers of Tuva, Huun Huur Tu.  There’s also music from Sweden by Lena Willemark and Ale Möller, traditional Irish music from the Bothy Band, and if we're lucky, some high-energy Romanian gypsy brass from Mahala Rai Banda.

Thanks very much for the archives, as we do not receive newsounds in the detroit metro area. I especially enjoyed the Finnish music. now I know where Mike Marshall & Daryl Anger may have received insoiration for their compositions.
