For this edition of New Sounds, we'll revisit live performances from WNYC's old performance studio. Listen to hi-tech guitar/sampling from Andre La Fosse, and mystical Jewish niggunim from Andy Statman and his Quartet. Plus, hear impressionist cello/piano music by David Darling and Ketil Bjornstad along with Indian-inspired music from composer Michael Harrison and his band Mandalla Jones. There's also traditional Persian music by the Mojdeh Ensemble and more.
