World Music Tour (Special Podcast Edition)

Friday, August 10, 2012


For this New Sounds, we’ll hear music from Cape Verde, by a male pop-griot singer, Tcheka. He plays traditional percussive guitar and weaves the batuku style (a style traditional to the islands that was banned by the Portuguese, but continued by the women in the fields as they worked.) Plus, music for accordion and double-bass from Finland, and traditional music of West Java, featuring the kacapi, a boat-shaped zither.  And more.
