Infectious Beat

This New Sounds program is an hour of dance music inspired by klezmer, Balkan and gypsy music, featuring the Klezmatics’s new CD “Brother Moses Smote The Water.” This incredible live CD, with special guests Joshua Nelson and Kathryn Farmer, captures the New York-based klezmer band taking on the mantle of a fire-and-brimstone gospel group, with deep drinks of soul and blues. Also, listen to Uri Caine’s klezmer-infected arrangement of Mahler’s Symphony #1, a clangorous re-working of the original Teutonic symphonic cloudbursts. Plus, works from Canzoniere Grecanico Salenico, Acquaragia Drom, The Beat Circus, and accordionist/composer Guy Klucevsek.
