Two by Two II

There's a lot of music for unusual duos on this edition of New Sounds, including music from the gypsy-esque acoustic indie madness of A Hawk and a Hacksaw. With an arsenal of accordion, percussion, violin and viola, along with some singing, these two have enlisted the help of the speed-Balkan masters Fanfare Ciocarlia on their latest release, "The Way the Wind Blows." Also on the show, an instrument combination not-to-be-missed of church organ and slide guitar from Norway. Plus, we'll hear some brand-new music featuring beat-boxing and the serene Tibetan vocals of Yungchen Lhamo. And much more.
