It's that time again for the monthly program of new releases. John Schaefer picks through the bucketloads of CDs, the lone limited edition LP (So Percussion Cage bootlegs!) and scrolls through the downloads (and their cryptic notes) that have flooded his inbox to find new releases worthy of showcasing in tonight's program.

Global Acoustic Music (Special Podcast)

For this New Sounds, we’ll hear some global acoustic works from the Touré-Raichel Collective.  It’s a collaboration between Malian musician Vieux Farka Touré and Israeli producer/keyboardist Idan Raichel which came about following a concert in Tel Aviv.  The results are stunning and elegant conversations between guitar (Touré) and piano (Raichel), where the strings of the piano are sometimes plucked like a harp or kora.  The songs are anchored by Israeli bassist Yossi Fine and Malian calabash player Souleymane Kane.  ("The Tel Aviv Session" will be out in late March, 2012.)
