Borrowing from other musical traditions is the focus of this program of Eurofolk on New Sounds. Hear some surprising recordings of European folk music, including Belgium’s Aqsak Maboul playing an Italian folksong; Italy’s Birkin Tree doing Celtic music; and Celtic band The Poozies singing a Polish song. Plus, there's music by the Warsaw Village Band, Värttinä, Dieter Ilg, and more.
