Brass Around the World

« previous episode | next episode »

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

For this New Sounds, enjoy an hour of works for brass, from the 19 piece French band Bigre! and sample some of the just-out release, “Brooklyn Babylon” from Darcy James Argue's Secret Society, (only 17 pieces strong.)  There’s also music from east and western Africa - Ethiopia and Benin, along with music from Macedonia, Manhattan and even Albania.  The Albanian outfit Fanfara Tirana meets London’s Trans-Global Underground on their fabulous record, “Kabatronics,” and for more brass band power, there’s the Kocani Orkestar from Macedonia.  Plus, listen to classic 1970’s Ethio-groove from Mahmoud Ahmed and Benin’s classic funk heroes, Orchestre Poly-Rythmo.
