Listen to Azerbaijani songs featuring the Alim Qasimov ensemble and arranged for the Kronos Quartet on this edition of New Sounds, from the record, “Floodplain.” Then something by PJ Harvey from “Let England Shake" with samples of what sounds like Turkish lamenting and kanun.  Also, listen to Southeastern European lament music from Ingram Marshall for voice and strings, his "Hidden Voices."  Plus, something by Serbian composer Boris Kovac, and more.
