This New Sounds program aims to take a tour of music around the world, in 59 minutes or less.  Listen to Bengali, Punjabi, Ethiopian and Senegalese music, along with other sounds.  Punjabi wedding music meets New Orleans Brass bands in the music of Brooklyn-based party band Red Baraat, then Samuel Yirga takes the groove of Ethiopian music as his starting point in a trance-jazz tune.

Also, composer Jocelyn Pook explores the immigrant/emigrant experience on her latest, “Desh,” which is the Bengali word for “homeland.”  Plus, music from Senegal, a U.K.-Gambian collaboration between guitarist Justin Adams and ritti-player Juldeh Camara (the ritti is a one- stringed fiddle), and a Sweden- Zimbabwe collaboration in the music of Monoswezi.

PROGRAM #3420, Around the Globe in 60 Minutes (First aired on 1/18/2013)
