Cross-Cultural Music

Saturday, January 21, 2012

Listen to this New Sounds for some cross-cultural music, including a brand-new collaboration between violinist Joshua Bell and Anoushka Shankar called "Variant Moods."  We'll also dig into the WNYC Archives for a work from 1967 concert at the U.N., featuring Anoushka's father, Ravi Shankar, performing a sitar and violin duet with the late classical violinist Yehudi Menuhin, accompanied by the late tabla master Ustad Alla Rakha.

New Sounds

New Folk from Northern Europe

Sunday, May 22, 2011

For this New Sounds, listen to music based on the traditions of northern Europe. Hear some punkass Polish nu-folk from the Warsaw Village Band's release, "Infinity" along with party music from Hedningarna, the "heathens" who remain true to the polska, a three-beat rhythm unique to Sweden.  Also, there's music from Denmark’s Sorten Muld, Norwegian/Sami singer Ande Somby, and more.
