See Saeid Shanbehzadeh & Basel Rajoub, at 8PM Saturday night, Dec. 7th, 2013, at the Asia Society as part of "New Sounds from Iran - Sound: The Encounter, New Music from Iran and Syria." Read more. 

Then hear music from Finland for the Finnish bowed lyre, the jouhikko by Pekko Käppi, which incorporates music of the Sami people, British folk, and Delta Blues.  Not to be outdone, there’s also music by the Arnold Chiwalala Band from Tanzania, singing in Swahili and playing traditional Finnish folk harp, the kantele.  Plus, pianist Richard Bennett fuses Indian classical music, jazz and electronica together in piano-based works derived from traditional Indian raga scales.  And more.
