There's music from North and West Africa on this New Sounds program.  We'll hear a trancey and exuberant series of recordings of master musicians of Gnawa from Ouled Bambara.  Also, we'll listen to the latest from the nomadic band Tinariwen from northern Mali -  Saharan seven-piece Malian desert blues with twanging guitar-led fuzz and funk.
