Music with Multiple Hyphens

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

Ordinarily, the music one hears on New Sounds has a lot of hyphens in it as one tries to describe it, but for this show, the hyphens have multiplied at least eight-fold.  Listen to blends of world music, minimalism, chamber music, jazz, rock and post-rock, big band, Ethio-jazz, folk music from the world over, Celtic, Latin jazz - all coming together in various combinations for the featured pieces.  Hear brand new music from the Dutch world-jazz post-rock fusion band the Ex, with guests Brass Unbound.  Also, hear from Sweden's Ale Møller and the Bohuslän Big Band, who bring together Celtic, folk, jazz, and medieval music.

Girls, Blume, Mulatu Astatke

Friday, April 11, 2008

Studio 360 samples girl culture. Student filmmakers weigh in on the women they see on screen and the “American Girl” empire embraces a period of ancient history: The 1970s. A translator in Istanbul brings Judy Blume to young Turkish readers, and a special dress becomes a powerful talisman for a young storyteller. Plus, a tattoo parlor pops up at a fancy art fair and we follow Ethiopia’s musical ambassador from Addis Ababa to Boston.
