For this New Sounds, we'll hear from Nawal, a singer from the Comoros Islands, whose acoustic-accompanied songs and trance-inducing chants draw from her Sufi heritage and Indian Ocean island rhythms. Also, guitarist and singer Tcheka plays an alluring hybrid of traditional Cape Verdean music and sun-kissed jazz. His second album, Nu Monda, won him the prestigious Radio France International “World Music Prize.” Plus, there's music from the Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio, a global cast of immigrant musicians based in Rome, and more.
