The Non-Western Orchestra

« previous episode | next episode »

Thursday, September 26, 2013

Listen to music that features the orchestra as a non-western ensemble. Hear music from a new tribute record, “The Road to Jajouka,” a recording honoring (and with proceeds supporting) the legendary Master Musicians of Jajouka led by Bachir Attar.  Then, the orchestra provides a drone in a live recording made at the Fes Festival of the traditional call to prayer. Also, hear the orchestra as an Indian instrument with the Bombay Dub Orchestra and as an instrument of the gypsy or Roma tradition in music from the Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio.  Plus, hear Jherek Bischoff’s orchestral arrangement of the music from Congotronics by Konono No. 1, and more.
