New Music for Cello

On this edition of New Sounds, listen to an hour of new music for cello, including music from cellist David Darling and The Wulu Bunun, an aboriginal tribe living in Taiwan. Also, hear the latest from Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Journeys- “Beyond the Horizon,” more collaboration with virtuoso musicians like China's pipa master Wu Man, and Armenian duduk player Gevorg Dabaghyan. Plus Chinese-born New York-based composer Tan Dun’s multimedia cello concerto called “The Map,” featuring the overtone singing style known as “Tongue Singing” of the young women of the Dong people of mainland China. And rounding out the show is music by French-Canadian singer-cellist Jorane.
