Cross Cultural Music From the Indian Subcontinent

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

For this New Sounds, hear a blend of western music & musicians with singers and instrumentalists from the Indian subcontinent; North and South India and/or Pakistan. Most unexpectedly, there’s a recently issued record, recorded in the late 1990’s, by guitarist Warren Cuccurullo of Duran Duran, Frank Zappa and Missing Persons fame together with the late Hindustani classical singer and sarangi (Indian box cello) player Ustad Sultan Khan. Then, listen to music from the late, great Pakistani Qawwali singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, in collaboration with Canadian Michael Brook. Also, hear music from the South-Indian born American-based double-necked 10 string electric violinist and composer, L. Shankar.

Piano and Voice (Encore Edition)

Tuesday, August 09, 2011

This New Sounds highlights evocative but enigmatic songs for that apparently simplest of combinations – piano and voice. From the most recent record by Susanne Abbuehl, hear “In the Dark Pine-Wood” with poetry by James Joyce, and something new from songwriter Lee Feldman. Also, there’s a beautiful tune - “Strange Lures” by the reclusive Ed Pastorini. Hear more music for piano and voice by Robin Holcomb with a breathtaking track, “Deliver Me.” Plus, Peter Gabriel’s “Here Comes The Flood.”

The Covers Album

Monday, March 08, 2010

When word came that the new Peter Gabriel album would be a collection of covers, that made news throughout the music world.  From Bowie to Arcade Fire, the set list is full of surprises.  The fact that there would be no rock band in the usual sense, but rather an orchestra backing up his vocals, almost became an afterthought.
