Near East/South Asian Connections

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

For this New Sounds, listen to music that mixes together the traditions of South Asia and the middle East and just as far west as Turkey.  Brooklyn-based Nashaz brings the Arab classical music influence to their oud-led jazz outfit, playing with scale, “Hijaz.” (Leader and oud player Brian Prunka also runs an Arabic jazz blog, as well as an oud site, for delving into the all the music theory.)  Also, Niyaz, the Montreal-based Iranian-American group, brings the Persian influence, and features hammered dulcimer.

More New Sounds Covers

Sunday, April 22, 2012

It's an hour of cover songs, New Sounds-style, with many familiar tunes in unexpected arrangements. We'll hear Pink Floyd, Stravinsky, Black Sabbath and Satie for this program. Listen as Marco Benevento and Julio Resende rework Pink Floyd songs and the new music ensemble Fireworks presents a version of the Rite of Spring. Plus, the Bad Plus hits it with "Ironman" and Marc Sloan reworks Erik Satie's Gnossienes. And much more.
