Mainly new music from Spain fills this New Sounds program. Listen to the flamenco blend of the unconventional cross-pollinators, Son de la Frontera. Their pounding flamenco footsteps over thundering guitars toes the line of Spanish-based traditions, and mixes in beats and melodies from Cuba, Argentina, Colombia and Venezuela. Also, there’s electroacoustic music from self-confessed musical alchemists Radio Tarifa. This trio draws from a wide variety of folkloric traditions: Castillian, Andalusian, Japanese, with diversions to Renaissance music just to keep you guessing. Plus, the “terrifyingly good technique” of Juan Martin (according to the Spanish paper El Mundo) as showcased in some medieval-inspired flamenco. And much more.
