On this edition of New Sounds, hear a collaboration between Pakistanis and Norwegians from an exotic CD called Ragas and Sagas, featuring saxophonist Jan Garbarek’s improvising saxophone, along with voice, sarangi, and tabla. In fact, the show is just full of cross-cultural Nordic music, including ambient trumpet jazz from Nils-Petter Molvaer, with wending solos, sometimes hypnotic and trip-hop smooth. Plus, Indian-flavored psychedelia and Irish bagpipes come together in violinist/composer Eyvind Kang’s work, “the Story of Iceland”.
