Listen to New Sounds-style reworkings of classical pieces on this program. There's music by Clogs and Ralph Towner, along with The John Dowland Project. Plus, we'll liberally sample the latest from Taraf de Haidouks, a CD of arrangements called Maskarada. On this, their latest release, there's Bartók, Khachaturian, Albeniz & a piece featuring distinguished singer/cimbalom player Virginica Dumitru, the first-ever female Taraf guest instrumentalist.
