"String" Trios

Monday, October 21, 2013

Listen to mostly unconventional string trios involving Malagasy zither, South Indian violin, West African kora, Chinese erhu, guitars of all sorts, banjo and much more.  First, hear a new collaborative trio record from Ralph Towner, Wolfgang Muthspiel, and Slava Grigoryan who are respectively, an American 12-string guitarist, an Austrian electric guitarist, and a Kazakhstan-born, Australia-based classical guitarist.  Also, listen to an electric guitar work from the French guitar trio Philharmonie, in addition to a trio of Chinese erhu, Hindustani mohan vina, and American banjo.  Then, folk-rock meets Carnatic music (South India) on a record from acoustic guitarist Martin Simpson, together with David Hidalgo on bajo sexton, and Viji Krishnan on violin.  That, and more.
