A Private Reel: Live on Soundcheck (Special Podcast)

For this New Sounds Special Podcast, we raid the exclusive live performance archive from that "other" show John Schaefer hosts, the afternoon program, Soundcheck.  We'll listen for tunes from pipa player Wu Man , Cuban singer Omara Portuondo , and the Italian percussionist Alessandra Belloni , to name a few. 

Plus, performances by Zakir Hussain and some of the Masters of Percussion, a traditional Mongolian drinking song from Hanggai , and jazz clarinet player Anat Cohen .  And so much more, including soft and dangerous banjo songs from Sam Amidon , Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars , and Irish trad tunes from Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill .
