From the New Sounds Live concerts, David Hykes and his groundbreaking vocal group The Harmonic Choir celebrate the 20th anniversary of their landmark work "Hearing Solar Winds" with a performance at the World Financial Center’s Winter Garden. The one-time New York-based ensemble, now residing in France, is known for blending Western idioms with the music of Mongolian nomads, and using natural harmonics, the "DNA of all musical sounds."
