World Music Roots


For this New Sounds, listen to music built around recordings of world music.  Hear music by Evan Ziporyn, built around Balinese vocalist Ni Lemon's recording, "Wagarasi," along with other works that contain samples from tracks from Tanzania Instruments, circa 1950. Also, listen to music by Eve Beglarian that draws from a Bengali recording and material from Steve Roach, which is based on Australian aboriginal music and makes use of the didgeridoo.  That, and more.
