The power players of the percussion world take center stage on this edition of New Sounds. Highlights include Zimbabwean mbira master Ephat Mujuru, whose new album, Journey of the Spirit, brilliantly captures the delicate beauty of the instrument. We get a sneak preview of Pedro Carneiro's Plainspoken (to be released in Spring 2003), which features solo Bach pieces interspersed with works by modern composers, notably Joseph Schwantner. Also on tap are selections from Mondo Beat 2's superstar CD Masters Of Percussion, by Mickey Hart/Planet Drum, Taufiq, and Greg Ellis.
