Global Acoustic Music

Saturday, May 10, 2014

For this New Sounds, we’ll hear some global acoustic works from the Touré-Raichel Collective.  It’s a collaboration between Malian musician Vieux Farka Touré and Israeli producer/keyboardist Idan Raichel which came about following a concert in Tel Aviv.  The results are stunning and elegant conversations between guitar (Touré) and piano (Raichel), where the strings of the piano are sometimes plucked like a harp or kora.  The songs are anchored by Israeli bassist Yossi Fine and Malian calabash player Souleymane Kane.
