A World of World Music (Special Podcast)

WNYC

There’s a world of world music for this New Sounds.  Listen to an electric distorted version of West African trance music from Justin Adams & Juldeh Camara, along with a powerful song of praise that explores the links between India and the Balkans from Sheeli Bringi. There’s also music from Maracatu New York, who are a band steeped in the maracatu band music of northeast Brazil.  Their sound manages to fuse Brazilian rhythms with those of traditional New Orleans Second Line music and the Mardi Gras Indians.
