World Tour

From frenetic crazy Bulgarian wedding music to the blown-out amplified sounds of thumb pianos, feast your ears on a smorgasbord of world music for this New Sounds program. Hear Ivo Papasov and Yuri Yunakov’s infectious Bulgarian be-bop once outlawed by the Soviets. There’s also fierce Flamencobilly-Rock from Martires del Campas, featuring screaming electric guitars combined with palmas (handclaps) and woody percussion, and Chico Ocano‘s blistering, raw-edged vocals. And not to be outdone, listen to a Congolese band whose electrified kalimbas (thumb pianos) wired to used car parts, a pots-and-pans rhythm section, and megaphone loudspeakers, are inexorably danceable. And much more.
