New Releases, February 2014

From

It's the end of the month, which brings another bunch of new releases to New Sounds.  Listen for new music from Moroccan-born Brooklyn-based musician, player of the sintir (bass lute), and "Godfather of Gnawa" Hassan Hakmoun, from his forthcoming record, “Unity.”  Then, from Mali, hear mostly acoustic music from Habib Koite, followed by traditional music from Bulgaria, arranged and played by mandolin virtuoso Avi Avital, from Israel.

Plus, riveting music for electric violin and looping pedals by Tracy Silverman – from his terrific new record “Between the Kiss and the Chaos,” and music by Sarah Neufeld (also known as the violinist from Arcade Fire.)  That, and more.
