New Releases March 2009

It's that time of the month again for the new releases show on New Sounds. John Schaefer carefully sorts through the stacks, bins, and boatloads of new CDs which have come across his desk over the past month to present some choice cuts. Perhaps we'll hear Taraab music from Zanzibar, wordless vocals involving Inuit mouth-breathing, dreamy banjo music, and a Ghanian dance music version of Bizarre Love Triangle. And possibly lots more that we can't see...
