On this edition of New Sounds, we sample songs of the Near East, from those of the early Christians to the Crusades to modern times. On tap are performances by ambient vocalist Azam Ali, who was born in Iran and raised in India; Mary Fahl, who first achieved fame as lead singer and co-founder of the cult band October Project; Sister Marie Keyrouz, a Lebanese nun who holds a second vocation as a musicologist, anthropologist, and singer; plus Yavina Sannatou, and the band Estampie.
