Near Eastern Sounds

Sunday, April 24, 2005

Western fascination with Asia has come in many forms, and more often than not it is accompanied by a whiff of colonialism or imperialism. Still, musical interchange is often a two-way street these days, as is the case on this edition of New Sounds. Listen to the near Eastern rhythms in Michael Askill's Salome; Abaji's Oriental Voyage; Abed Azrie's Aromates; and Peter Gabriel's Zaar. Plus, works by Rabih Abou-Khalil, Ofra Haza, Dhaffer Yousuf, and more.
