Global Collaborations

« previous episode | next episode »

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

This New Sounds program highlights some unexpected global collaborations- including but not limited to- Uzbeki bluegrass, musicians based in Italy who meld North African and Bollywood music, and Mardi Gras marching bands coupled with Argentinean tango flair. Listen to a Creole tango from the Boston-based Revolutionary Snake Ensemble, who regularly ride the party train down to Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

Also, hear musicians from the Andes (highlands of South America) and those from Azerbaijan (the Caucausus Mountain region, where Europe meets Asia) on a Norwegian recording by Transatlantic Non-Stop. Plus jazz pianist Randy Weston makes a connection between Egypt and China, and there's a Chinese-Ukranian collaboration from Wu Man and Julian Kytasty.  And more.
