#3477: Music With Folk Roots (Special Podcast)

Email a Friend
From

Listen to ensemble pieces which incorporate or draw from the folk music of several different parts of the world on this New Sounds program. Hear music that simulates the sound of Norwegian folk fiddling. It’s the work of Princeton University professor Dan Trueman, founder of the Princeton Laptop Orchestra and a Norwegian hardanger fiddle specialist together with So Percussion. 

Then, listen to Nordic klezmer/folk band Afenginn, who take what they need from other parts of the world and their own to create a (their words) "Bastard Ethno" music. Plus, Ale Møller brings in the Norwegian form of bagpipe, along with the traditional Norwegian willow-bark flute, in his latest, a collaboration with the Bohuslän Big Band. 

Hear music by Nathan Davis which is inspired by the function of mbira music in the life rituals of the Shona people of Zimbabwe. Then, listen to folktronica from the Argentine producer and musician Gaby Kerpel which uses mbira samples in addition to those of South American instruments. Plus, music featuring thumb piano from the Norwegian Karl Seglem. All that, and more.
