New Sounds

Global Dance Music

Sunday, August 21, 2011

Dance music from West Africa, from Southen Africa, from India and beyond awaits you on this New Sounds.  Hear something new from Femi Kuti (son of Fela), and something from banjo player Bela Fleck's "Throw Down Your Heart," recorded on the island of Madagascar.  Quite possibly there might also be Balkan brass band music from Goran Bregovic, and a bit of Angolan music by way of Brazil.

This New Sounds program features music for wind instruments, like Lebanese Arabic-groove music for the ney flute by Bassam Saba, and Andy Statman's clarinet, as heard in Hassidic tunes that he's arranged on his release, "Between Heaven and Earth."  Plus, music by Igor Leonardi from Slovenia, music from Bulgaria, from Turkey, and perhaps even some music from Georgia.
