I would like to listen to some pieces from your show that your aired on the night of July 35th 2007 - Bang on a Can 2007 Marathon, Pt. 2 . I am particularly interested in the Indian Classical ensemble on violin that was played on the air.

Is it archived and if so how could I access it to listen. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Hi John, could you please post the name of the player or band of the Indian music at about halfway through the program? The name of the piece was interesting in some way (wordplay?) but that's now escaped me too! If you'll be posting the mp3s of the marathon I'll just listen again to find the name.
I endlessly love New Sounds.
