Cross-cultural works for Western instruments take center stage on this edition of New Sounds. We hear guitarist Bill Frisell and The Intercontinentals on a new recording that features the haunting sound of Malian blues guitar. Joining Frisell are percussionist Sidiki Camara, Greek oud and bouzouki player Christos Govetas; pedal steel guitarist Greg Leisz; and Brazilian guitar and vocal great Vinicius Cantuaria. Also on the program are selections from the Kronos Quartet’s Pieces of Africa; keyboardist Katrina Krimsky’s Time Over Time, and more.
