Friday, February 14, 2014

For this New Sounds program, hear an hour of love songs from around the world, including a recording from the Malian Cuban group called Afrocubism, and a setting of the Song of Songs by Israeli singer Ofra Haza.  Listen to songs in Spanish, Portugal, Cajun-French, Hebrew, Bengali, and maybe even English.  Listen to the multi-level Iranian love (and also devotional) poetry from Bahar Movahed & Ali Akbar Moradi as well as a Cajun love song from Beausoleil. Plus, a song about forbidden love from Egypt by Ali Hassan Kuban, and a little bit of Kraftwerk.
