Teach Your Children Well

Saturday, April 19, 2014

For this New Sounds, listen to music by the sons and daughters of really fine musicians.  We’ll hear Shona music from the country of Zimbabwe by Baba Maraire (formerly Tendai.) His father, Dumisani (Dumi), an ethnomusicologist, was one of the first African musicians to build a grass roots movement of marimba, and came to be informally dubbed, “Godfather of Shona Music.”

With Ravi & Anoushka Shankar

Thursday, November 07, 1996

In this 1996 show, Pandit Ravi Shankar and his then 15-year old daughter, Anoushka Shankar visited the studio.  The Indian sitar maestro discussed the importance of teaching the vocal repertoire so that one might sing on the sitar, and made mention of his new 4-CD retrospective, then just-released.  The father-daughter duet also performed an adapted South Indian raga (actually it was performed as a family, with the time kept by Ravi's wife, since there was not a tabla player at the session.)
