Anthropofagia = Musical Cannabalism

Monday, May 31, 2010

From percussionist Cyro Baptista, isten to "Banquet of the Spirits," an entire smorgasbord of music and culture, not unlike New York City (or New Sounds, for that matter.)  

"Banquet" turns over the idea Anthropofagia - ancient cannibal tribes eating human beings as a way to gain power of their spirit -  digesting international musical trends and cultural influences and rendering them into a nourishing experience.  Featuring musical instruments like "20 feet of chains," "waterphone" and "donkey jaw," (among other things like berimbau, mbira and saxophone), we'll hear "retirante," on this edition of New Sounds.  There's also Turkish-flavored chamber music by The Dem Trio, from their release, "Fountain."  Plus, Wu Man 's arrangement of a Cantonese folk song, "Raining," for pipa (Chinese lute) and adungu (Ugandan harp) where the plucked strings and harmonic chords recreates the sound and atmosphere of a rainy day.  And more.
