Dikanda Dikanda (

This New Sounds program stirs some more mixtures into the global music melting pot with traditional Macedonian folksong performed by Polish band with African name – Dikanda, and some Balkan brass band music from Boban Markovic. There’s also something from Hanggai, a Chinese band that combines traditional Mongolian overtone singing with Western rock and jazz. 

Then, listen to music from India with electronica edge to it from Talvin Singh & Niladri Kumar.  Plus, hear music from Ethiopia from before and after the “golden age” of Ethiopian jazz and pop.  And more.
