For this New Sounds program, take a taste of some Western works with a Near-Eastern tinge, including music from the likes of Berlin's jazz-rock-pop-classical band, 17 Hippies. Featuring ukulele and a Persian hammered dulcimer—played by a former heavy metal drummer—together with an acoustic Turkish take of the hip hop classic “Apache," their whirling, crashing, diving mixture of music, loosely bobs and weaves into and out of the Balkans, Eastern Europe and beyond. There are also works by the fast, fierce and classically trained musicians of DAAU, along with works by 17 Pygmies. And more.
