Listen to a veritable melting pot of music for this New Sounds. Quebec meets the Middle East in the music of the McDades, folk-jazz with a dash of tabla or santoor. Then Norwegian and bluegrass fiddles mix in the odd chamber group called QQQ. We'll hear from their debut release, "Unpacking the Trailer." Plus, Brazil, Africa, and India come together in the work of Codona, from a new retrospective collection, and more.
