Caucasus Mountain Music (Special Podcast)

Thursday, June 27, 2013

WNYC

Watch out for more music for the duduk (a reed instrument indigenous to Armenia) than you can shake a stick at!  We'll hear from the Gurdjieff Folk Instruments Ensemble, along with music from Andrew Cronshaw's latest cross-cultural collaboration (Armenian & British), "The Unbroken Surface of Snow," at times an unlikely combination of zither and duduk.

There's also traditional Georgian music in choral arrangements and in a solo clarinet version by Evan Ziporyn.  Plus, music from the Greek singer Savina Yannatou and her band, in Armenian.

Special thanks to our New Sounds Spring Intern, Caroline, for her help in securing these permissions.  Extra thanks to New Sounds Summer Intern Ross Harriss, for more production help
