Broken Arm Trio

New Sounds

Unusual Small Ensembles

Saturday, November 27, 2010

For this New Sounds, listen to a whole treasure trove of unusual instrument combinations in smallish configurations.  We’ll hear from the Senegalese singer/kora player Ablaye Cissoko and German-born trumpeter Volker Goetze, who collaborated on an exotic and mysterious effort, “Sira,” (translates as Mermaid.)  On it, they demonstrate Cissoko’s immersion in jazz, and Goetze's fascination with African music sometimes in dancey, plucked melodies and soft plaintive horn tranquility.
