New Music from Poland

Sunday, March 02, 2014

This New Sounds is full of new music from Poland.  We’ll hear from the klezmer and Balkan-inflected jazz-ish strains of Kroke, along with “hardcore folk” from the Warsaw Village Band, whose driving fiddle and trumpets take wedding songs or Balkan Jazz and layer them with “white voice” singing (a lyrical screaming used by Polish shepherds).
