Listen to music from around the globe, in the music from Italy, India, Egypt, Tunisia and Mali on this New Sounds. Hear music of northeastern and southeastern Europe together in the eight members of Finno-Balkan Voices, a Finnish-Estonian folk singing group and a Balkan choir. Then, there’s music and dances from Southern Italy in a piece from Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino. Hear the collaborative duo between a Jewish clarinetist from France, Yom, and Wang Li, a Chinese player of the “Jew’s Harp”/jaw-harp, mouth-harp from their 2012 record, “Green Apocalypse.” Listen to music from Anouar Brahem’s latest gorgeous release, “Souvenance,” music for oud, piano, quartet & small orchestra. Plus, music from Rasha, a singer from Sudan who lives and works in Spain, and a Sudanese-born singer by way of Yemen, who now lives in Brooklyn, Alsarah, of Alsarah & the Nubatones. Then, listen to Egyptian oud master, Tarek Abdallah, and percussionist Adel Shams El-Din, who both live in France, as they revive Arab musical tradition from their excellent, “Wasla.”  And more.
