For this New Sounds, we'll listen to some musical postcards from well-traveled slide-guitarist Bob Brozman. From Papua New Guinea, to Mali, and then on a collaboration with Indian slide guitarist Debashish Battachrya, Brozman supports the case that music has no borders. Plus, music from Malian guitarist Lobi Traore, the boundary-breaking band Not Drowning, Waving, and more.
