This April 26, 1990 edition of New Sounds "From the Vaults" runs a wide and fascinating stylistic gamut, from the Korean-born komungo player Jin Hi Kim (pictured), to guitarist Jed Mathews, to the Tibetan Singing Bowl Ensemble led by Raphael Mostel. The show kicks off with a November 1985 performance by Ben Tavera King, long a fixture on the tex-mex scene whose style incorporates elements of flamenco, American Indian music, and dare we say - New Age. We also feature the Mikel Rouse Broken Consort, a mixed ensemble that made a number of visits to the WNYC studios in the late 1980s. We hear "Ranger," a bracing blend of composed and improvised forms.
