There’s world music from Italy, the Netherlands, Finland, Poland, and other parts of Europe on this New Sounds show.  Listen to music from Caspian Hat Dance which suggests the Mediterranean, along with music that is Sardinian in origin, and music sung in Frisian, a language spoken only in the northern part of Holland.  Then, hear Czech music from Marta Topferova along with revolutionary gore songs and hardcore folk from Poland.  Plus, a mostly-immigrant, multi-ethnic band based in Italy reinvents music from all over the world, Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio, and more.
