It’s a cross-cultural hour of music on this New Sounds program. Hear a piece from the Orchestre National de Jazz featuring oud player Anouar Brahem, plus a trio work from a record by percussionist Yousif Sheronick. Also, joining us live in the studio is the East-West Ensemble, the boundary-blurring Israeli band which mixes the melodies and structures of Jewish, Arab, Asian, rock, and jazz idioms.
