Frontiers of Flamenco

Thursday, February 14, 2013

For this New Sounds, we’ll look beyond flamenco, experiencing collisions of Indian classical music and flamenco, along with other flamenco blends.  From a forthcoming record by Indian classical slide guitar player Debashish Bhattacharya, hear what happens when Hindustani and Spanish flamenco music are brought together.  Also, listen to the most recent record from Anoushka Shankar, daughter of late sitar master Ravi Shankar.  Her release, “Traveller” is a musical journey where she travels the world musically, incorporating Indian and flamenco music along the way.  Plus, there’s flamenco fusion music from Ketama, featuring the great Malian kora player Toumani Diabate, and more.

I missed the show yesterday. Is there a chance that we might get to listen to it online? Hope so!

Thanks, Limg
