Friday, November 03, 2006

A world of musical influences are fused together as the Bombay Dub Orchestra draws from ambient, western classical, Indian classical & light classical music and many other places. On this edition of the program, hear selections from the forthcoming album by Bombay Dub Orchestra, who are UK based producer and composer Garry Hughes and classical composer and arranger Andrew T. Mackay. There’s also music from the Canadian Ghazal singer Kiran Ahluwalia and her sometime Celtic backing band. Ahluwalia was raised in Toronto where she fell in love with ghazals, the sophisticated musical love poems of India she was exposed to by her Punjabi parents. Plus works from Cheb I Sabbah, whose latest release is a mix of Arab, Jewish, and Berber elements.
