Episode #2975

All Over the World Music

« previous episode | next episode »

Wednesday, September 02, 2009

For this New Sounds, hear some world music that doesn't come from one specific part of the world, including Les Triaboliques, featuring guitarist Justin Adams and 3 Mustaphas 3 founder Ben Mandelson. Plus, session-guitarist extraordinaire Smokey Hormel steps into the spotlight with a collection of Central African dance hits of the 1950s and 60s. There's also a tune from Berlin's 17 Hippies, an almost untraceable blend of music from the gypsy, or Roma tradition, fused with circus chamber punk, mariachi music, and American country music. And, not to be outdone, New York's own Blarvuster pits composer Matthew Welch on Celtic bagpipes together with his studies of Gamelan, up against some Afrobeat-y drumming. SEE Blarvuster (and their all-star lineup featuring guitarist Mary Halvorson and drummer Brian Chase) along with Electric Kulintang (Susie Ibarra and Roberto Rodriguez) at the Kitchen on September 17th and 18th.
