Traditional Blend

Saturday, April 06, 2013

Hear unexpected blends of traditional music on this edition of New Sounds.  We'll listen to selections from bagpiper/composer Matthew Welch's band Blarvuster, an outfit that somehow pulls in Balinese/Indonesian gamelan, Celtic influences, minimalist licks, and a rock attitude to emerge with irresitible and unusual textures, both traditional and non.

Cross-Cultural Music

Sunday, February 20, 2011

Listen to a veritable melting pot of music for this New Sounds.  Quebec meets the Middle East in the music of the McDades, folk-jazz with a dash of tabla or santoor.  Then Norwegian and bluegrass fiddles mix in the odd chamber group called QQQ.  We'll hear from their debut release, "Unpacking the Trailer."  Plus, Brazil, Africa, and India come together in the work of Codona, from a new retrospective collection, and more.
