World Music

The singer, percussionist, dancer and actress Alessandra Belloni joins John Schaefer in the studio to perform a particularly irresistible tarantella with a blend of Brazilian accordion and percussion coupled with Italian traditional singing and chitarra. Also on this New Sounds, music by David Darling fusing the vocal polyphony of the Wulu Bunum people of Taiwan with cello anchors and lush soundscapes. Plus, songs from Mali’s Issa Bagayogo, DJ Cheb I Sabbah, and more.
