It’s a pretty kettle of goulash on this edition of New Sounds. Hear melodies and rhythms rooted in Eastern Europe, the Balkans, and the North, with contemporary ensemble arrangements of traditional tunes from Hungary, Russia, Sweden and Bulgaria, to name a few. Listen for Nordic sounds colliding with the Bulgarian as the group Farmer’s Market serve up their self-dubbed “speed-Balkan-boogie”. Then there’s the Swedish trio Frifot’s plucky energetic hardinger fiddle and bagpipe neo-folk. Also on the program is the chamber music of Makam, where the elements of ancient Hungarian folk music meet classical, contemporary, jazz and rock.
