World Music

Listen to the dangerous heat of Hazmat Modine, together with Tuvan throat singer Huun-Huur-Tu as we administer a dose of cross-cultural world music on this New Sounds. Some of the most gleeful and unexpectedly wicked combinations of noises come from this band, like the recorded sounds of Sri Lankan crickets or dogs from Bali barking through the night, along with odd instruments like the cimbalom, the claviola, the sarrusaphone, and the contra-bass saxophone. There’s also new music based on Persian and Turkish music from the collaborative efforts of kamancheh player Kayhan Kalhor and baglama, or saz player, Erdal Erzincan. And as always, much more.
