New Music, Old Roots

« previous episode | next episode »

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

Listen to new music with old roots on this New Sounds program.  Hear from the latest release, “Bella Ciao” by New York band Barbez, led by Dan Kaufman.  Inspired both by ancient Roman-Jewish melodies, Italian neorealist cinema,and more immediately, by the songs of resistance during the Nazi occupation of Rome by the Italian partisans of World War II.  The tunes weave European folksong, post-war classical, and experimental rock into heavy otherworldly protest cinema-scapes.

Also, listen to another bit of music with roots in WWII by the Kamikaze Ground Crew – a cover of music by Austrian composer Hans Eisler and German poet, playwright Bertolt Brecht, who were both banned by the Nazis in 1933.  Then, there’s music from Sons of Kemet, a U.K. based quartet whose clarinet / saxophone play with Klezmer, while invoking the spirit of a second line meets Jamaica’s nyabinghi drum cults. Also, klezmer-based music from clarinet virtuoso David Krakauer.  That, and so much more.
