Brass Around the World (Special Podcast)

From

For this New Sounds, enjoy an hour of works for brass, from the 19 piece French band Bigre! and sample some of the just-out release, “Brooklyn Babylon” from Darcy James Argue's Secret Society, (only 17 pieces strong.)  There’s also music from Benin in western Africa, along with music from Macedonia, Manhattan and even Albania.  The Albanian outfit Fanfara Tirana meets London’s Trans-Global Underground on their fabulous record, “Kabatronics,” and for more brass band power, there’s the Kocani Orkestar from Macedonia.  Plus, listen to Benin’s classic funk heroes, Orchestre Poly-Rythmo.

Special thanks to our New Sounds Spring Intern, Caroline, for her help in securing these permissions.
