Near East/South Asian Connections

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

For this New Sounds, listen to music that mixes together the traditions of South Asia and the middle East and just as far west as Turkey.  Brooklyn-based Nashaz brings the Arab classical music influence to their oud-led jazz outfit, playing with scale, “Hijaz.” (Leader and oud player Brian Prunka also runs an Arabic jazz blog, as well as an oud site, for delving into the all the music theory.)  Also, Niyaz, the Montreal-based Iranian-American group, brings the Persian influence, and features hammered dulcimer.
