Not having a single homeland hasn't stopped Kurdish musicians from making their influence felt, especially the high-octane Kamkars Ensemble, now based in Europe. For this New Sounds, it's a sampling of Kurdish music from a variety of artists. We'll also hear from renowned fiddler Kayhan Kalhor and Ali Akbar Moradi, Israeli-based singer Ilana Eliya, the Iranian sisters Mahsa and Marjam Vahdat, and a Kurdish melody from the G I Gurdjieff/Thomas De Hartmann piano collection.
