This edition of New Sounds showcases several recent releases by artists from around the world, including the latest from DJ Cheb i Sabbah, an excursion into the devotional music of India. From Spain, we hear the flamenco wizardry of singer Miguel Poveda and from the US, it's David Krakauer's latest Klezmer Madness CD, The Twelve Tribes. We also feature Kandia Kouyate, the Mali-born Griot who is backed up by her six-man acoustic band on her CD, Biriko (pictured). Music by Juan Martin and Ben Allison, among others, rounds out the mix.
