World Music Survey


For this New Sounds, listen to an hour of world music, beginning in the concert hall with "La Pasion," the world music-tinged setting of the Passion according to St. Mark by Argentinian-American composer Osvaldo Golijov.

There's also music by South Africa's Amabutho, Pakistani sufi music by the late great Qawwali singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Indian music by Paban Das Baul, and more.
