Unusual Collaborations

Sunday, January 27, 2013

On this New Sounds program, hear music from Iraqi oud master Rahim AlHaj, in collaboration with accordion virtuoso Guy Klucevsek, from a fascinating double album of cross-cultural collaborations, called “Little Earth.”  AlHaj studied with Munir Bashir, but was also trained in Western classical music, and on this global effort was joined by folks as diverse as Cape Verde’s Maria de Barros, Bill Frisell, Peter Buck, and Mali’s Yacouba Sissoko.
