Caucasus Mountain Music

Saturday, May 03, 2014

Watch out for more music for the duduk (a reed instrument indigenous to Armenia) than you can shake a stick at!  We'll hear from the Gurdjieff Folk Instruments Ensemble, along with music from Andrew Cronshaw's latest cross-cultural collaboration (Armenian & British), "The Unbroken Surface of Snow," at times an unlikely combination of zither and duduk.

Kurdish Music

Saturday, January 01, 2011

Not having a single homeland hasn't stopped Kurdish musicians from making their influence felt, especially the high-octane Kamkars Ensemble, now based in Europe. For this New Sounds, it's a sampling of Kurdish music from a variety of artists.  We'll also hear from renowned fiddler Kayhan Kalhor and Ali Akbar Moradi, Israeli-based singer Ilana Eliya, the Iranian sisters Mahsa and Marjam Vahdat, and a Kurdish melody from the G I Gurdjieff/Thomas De Hartmann piano collection.
