Song of Realization

Minnesota guitarist Steve Tibbetts faces east once again on his most recent release, Selwa, a follow-up to his 1997 collaboration with the Tibetan Buddhist nun Chöying Drolma. He joins us in the studio for this edition of New Sounds to talk about the new recording and its gorgeous layers of ancient ritual chants with electronic sounds, acoustic guitar and percussion.
