This New Sounds program is devoted to music from Italy, featuring music from Enzo Avitabile using traditional percussion - that of barrels, scythes and sticks - to drive spirits away.  We'll also listen to a requiem incorporating the accelerated ecstatic drumming of Alessandra Belloni, with its roots in pre-Christian music.  Plus music by musician and radio host Nando Citarella with a sidelong glance at Mozart.  And more.
