From

Listen to an hour of world music on this New Sounds. Hear a Malagasy Greek American version of a song from the Bahamas by Joseph Spence, in a collaboration by Rossy, Paul & Pana.  Also, listen to Yo Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, in a 4-part work by David Bruce which feels like dance step instructions. Then, there’s New York-based Annabouboula doing Greek blues songs, along with the Greek singer Savina Yannatou, in music from the island of Sardinia. And more.
