New Sounds

Eurasian Folk

Sunday, March 23, 2014

For this New Sounds, we’ll sample music rooted in both Europe and Asia, along with updated folk music from both regions.  Hear Indian sitar and Basque (northern Spain) marimba come together in music from Oreka Tx, as well as music from the throat singers of Tuva, Huun Huur Tu.  There’s also music from Sweden by Lena Willemark and Ale Möller, traditional Irish music from the Bothy Band, and if we're lucky, some high-energy Romanian gypsy brass from Mahala Rai Banda.

New Music for Chorus and Folk Singers

Saturday, January 25, 2014

For this New Sounds, hear music for the rich and unexpected combination of folk singer and ensemble.  We’ll take a listen to Swedish composer Bo Hannson’s work for chorus & folk singer, (along with string ensemble), written on chryptical latin text from ancient times.  The singer is fiddler, composer, and voice magician, Lena Willemark, who is as at home with folk music as she is with avant jazz.
