New Sounds

Brass Around the World

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

For this New Sounds, enjoy an hour of works for brass, from the 19 piece French band Bigre! and sample some of the just-out release, “Brooklyn Babylon” from Darcy James Argue's Secret Society, (only 17 pieces strong.)  There’s also music from east and western Africa - Ethiopia and Benin, along with music from Macedonia, Manhattan and even Albania.  The Albanian outfit Fanfara Tirana meets London’s Trans-Global Underground on their fabulous record, “Kabatronics,” and for more brass band power, there’s the Kocani Orkestar from Macedonia.  Plus, listen to classic 1970’s Ethio-groove from Mahmoud Ahmed and Benin’s classic funk heroes, Orchestre Poly-Rythmo.
