Children of the Otter

Saturday, July 05, 2014

For this New Sounds, hear some music that has not yet been released on CD by the Russian composer Vladimir Martynov - an epic project called “Children of the Otter.”  The work blends the ancient Tuvan sounds of the throat-singing ensemble Huun Huur Tu with a contemporary chamber orchestra and a choir singing poetry of the Russian avant-garde poet Velimir Khlebnikov (1885-1922.)

World Music Singing Tour

Saturday, April 13, 2013

A Bulgarian, a Greek and a Turk walk into a bar…  Not the opening of a joke, rather it’s the vocal group Trio Tzane, who make music together under the motto “Balkan polyphonies and other vocal stories.”  We’ll hear from them, along with a few selections from Huun Huur Tu, the throat singers of Tuva.  Also, listen to some Norwegian sami singing, or joiking, from Jienat, with a whole lot of Brazilian, and West African percussion that renders the music utterly danceable.

Pan-Cultural Music

Saturday, August 11, 2012

Listen to groups that mix and match freely from many of the world’s different musical traditions on this New Sounds. There's pan-cultural music by Iceland’s Bardukha, who mix Balkan and Klezmer and from New York’s Tribecastan, who sound something like Arabic jazz-folk music. Plus London’s 3 Mustaphas 3, Israel’s Balkan Beat Box, and more.
