Lutes Around the World

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Listen to music from members of the lute family on this New Sounds show. These instruments can be found in most of the world’s tradition from the Central Asian tanbur, to the Greek bouzouki, to the Russian balalaika, and the Chinese pipa. But, in true New Sounds fashion, there will be some mixing up of these traditions of the lutes around the world.  Hear music from the Afghan-American rubab master Quraishi, whose family lineage is deep with musicians and instrument makers. Listen to his original work, “Wardagi” – in which he blends three traditional folk songs that his father often sang while playing the rubab, songs which are unique to the style of playing that originates from his father’s home province of Wardak.  Quraishi performs live at 1PM on Sunday August 3, as part of Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors.  FREE.
